It is 1967 the US is waging war in the jungles and forests of Vietnam and young Jack Taylor is having to settle in to yet another new school in yet another new town but this time things are slightly different His family are always moving around no change there and this time they have moved near Parson s Creek deep in the heart of one of America s own forests but from day one something isn t as expected The deer are behaving oddly and there are strange scents and shadows amongst the treesJack wants to understand what is happening in the woods and in the process he comes across adults who know than they are saying old native American myths and recent tensions as well as cataclysmic historic accidents He also has to deal with a first Homecoming Dance date the ongoing uncertainties of a new school learning to drive and the fact that not everything in life has clear cut answers and explanationsThe mysteries deepen as Jack penetrates further into the woods and the locale s past history but it is possible that the mystery is in return insinuating itself in day to day life This is an atmospheric tale for young adults set deep in the wilderness myths of America I confess to being well past the young adult stage of my development but as far as I can tell Sutton s novel seems well pitched at its intended audience in terms of tone style and subject matter The story is relatively simple but the underlying explorations of American history and the nation s relationship to its past and its present are intriguing

I thought I might be a good target for Richard Sutton s On Parson s Creek no relation to the American soap opera Dawson s Creek as I love a touch of the strange and some of my favourite books are those by for instance Ray Bradbury which portray a kind of magical look back at boyhood although in this case it s teenhood with all the uncomfortable difficulties that particular time of life throws up And I was rightSutton does an excellent job of portraying the brooding atmosphere of the dark woods in which the protagonist finds himself recently moved in with his family and coping with the difficulties of a new school making new friends at the same time as exploring this uncanny backwoods location In parts the storytelling oozes atmosphere particularly in the scenes with the old railroad locomotiveWhat starts off as a classic young people discover strange things and try to sort it out without involving adults tale takes some interesting twists as the discoveries get mixed up with Indian legend and the possibility that the woods are home to something like a tribe of BigfootAlthough the main character is a teenager I had no problem getting absorbed by the book My only real complaint was that Sutton doesn t give us enough It s uite a short book and I think he could have expanded the story to give it drama and a striking destination In fact in a way the problem is that the storytelling is too realistic This feels like what a real encounter with Bigfoot might be like but I wanted drama obstacles to overcome and twists and turns in the plotSince they always say Leave them wanting this surely is a relatively small omission on the part of the author That apart it s a book I really enjoyed
