SELAH, Wash. (PRWEB) August 28, 2015
The legend of the Big Foot comes alive in author Chester S. McLaughlin's newest book, "Finding Freemont" (published by Xlibris). In this compelling fiction, readers are taken back in time to the early 1900s on a hunt to find the mysterious ape.
“Freemont” is a young, growing ape, believed to be related to the family of adolescent-like pygmies of apes, an offshoot of the giant apes. It was known to roam in the Northwestern United States, now very rarely seen and known as a giant ape, called, “Big Foot,” or by its Indian name, “Sasquatch.” The Big Foot is notoriously a shy, passive beast unless rankled. In those days, when Washington was just a territory in western Pennsylvania, writings claim its discovery as being a “Giant Ape-like monster”. This species was first discovered rambling over the lower slopes of the Alleghany Mountains.
Brother and sister Adele Adams and Wallace Adams Sr., then students in the medical field, first encountered the said ape's specimen for their dissection. Yet, it was years later, when Wallace Jr and an older Adele began their travels together in the northeastern Washington state and had the most remarkable experience with what was once thought as a creature of the myths.
Peopled with unforgettable characters entangled in a complex web of intrigue and mystery, "Finding Freemont" invites readers to step into a world of fantasy and enjoy pure entertainment from first page to last.
