Publisher's Summary

Deep in the heart of Alaska’s southeast coast lies a place so fearsome that even the native Tlingits avoid it, a place that’s the home of their earthquake god, Kah Lituya. There, those who drown in the bay’s treacherous entrance become kushtaka, ghost-like beings as dangerous as the bay itself.  

In this quintessential Rusty Wilson story, a desperate man goes to Lituya Bay to die, but soon finds that the place holds other deeper secrets.

With only the jacket on his back, he must decide if he instead wants to live, and if so, how to outwit the hand of his blackest fears and outsmart a creature that wishes him dead. And even if he can outwit the creature, can he survive the many other dangers of Lituya Bay?  

"This is a fantastic story, evocative and eerie with a real feel for the landscape and mythos. It’s the perfect Rusty tale." (Roger Dean Miller, author of the popular comedy thriller, Bombing Hoffman).

Heartfelt and Touching Story

This was another wonderful story from Rusty Wilson. He relates a beautiful story of a man who loses everything and goes to Alaska's Lituya Bay to die. Once there he finds more than he bargained for, including the will to live after being menaced by a strange creature. Heartfelt and touching, it is an amazing story of a rebirth, told with respect. If you have read any of Rusty's other books (his Bigfoot Campfire Stories are not to be missed), you will definitely enjoy this one. Wonderful narration by the amazing Richard Henzel.

Love it!

I have many much-loved audios from Rusty Wilson. But there is something so special in his longer length stories. I truly hope he decides to do more long stories because he has a gift to share and it's easier to get into it. I never feel Rusty Wilson's stories are corny, and my family never gets tired of Bigfoot. This story is poignant, divorced man goes on journey not expecting to return but along the way he wakes up. Appealing to any age. Much appreciated!
