Wilderness Ranger’s Journal: Rendezvous at Devil’s Elbow — An Allagash Tail – Volume 4

Book 2 in the North Maine Woods Trilogy (Olivia’s Journey) of The Allagash Tails Collection

by Tim Caverly

Illustrations by Franklin Manzo, Jr

In the dark of night there is always something else!

There is a always special feeling to the Allagash (those of you who’ve been there know!); a sense of adventure, the thrill of getting away from it all!

In the prequel to the popular An Allagash Haunting, but written afterwards, the family has only been on the water for four days and already Livy has experienced enough to last a lifetime.

In this mystery-adventure paddle with  Olivia and her family as they canoe Northern Maine’s most famous wilderness river The Allagash. The three family members have only been on the river for four days and already they have experienced enough to last a life time. Looking at a map of their travel route they find there is a bend in the river called “The Devil’s Elbow” in front of them. They wonder what they could  possibly encounter next as the current carries them down stream against their will.  In the darkest of the night, a shadow lingers, hiding beyond the reach of the lantern’s fingers of light.  It remains obscure in the midst of the evergreens and old growth. Among the campfires and s’mores, a bone-chilling draft embraces all. Shivering, we draw our coats tighter to protect against the rawness.
