The winter of 1799 is falling fast on the Ohio frontier settlement of Hugh's Lick. Food is scarce, and tense relations with the neighboring Delaware village threaten to erupt into an all-out war. But things are about to get much worse.
In the midst of a ferocious storm, frontiersman Cole Seavey is attacked by a terrifying creature spawned from the bowels of hell. Pakim, a Delaware brave, rescues a gravely wounded Cole and delivers him to safety at the home of friendly settlers that his recollection of the monster-as well as his confusing feelings for Pakim-are simply the products of his fevered brain.
But the killings begin. As the townspeople wait in terror for the next ferocious attack, Cole and Pakim learn the ghastly violence is the work of an ancient, implacable menace: the Wendigo.
Soon the forest is littered with sundered corpses, and most of the settlers flee. Only Cole, Pakim and their small band of allies remain to confront the Wendigo-which is closer than they think.
