    A captivating tale of love and legend, Mystery Valley brings to life a late nineteenth century First Nations community near Harrison Hot Springs, BC. At a time of early contact with Europeans, Luyana, an elder of the Chehalis nation, finds an abandoned sasquatch infant on the banks of the Harrison River. Sheltering the creature, Luyana secretly raises it until she can no longer hide its presence from the community, who eventually welcome him as a brother. When intruders arrive in search of a trophy sasquatch, the Chehalis unite to protect the creatures who live deep in the hills in a place they call Mystery Valley. These hunters also threaten the way of life of a peaceful people living in harmony with nature. A first novel of myth and imagination based on extensive research into First Nations culture, Mystery Valley takes the reader on an intriguing journey of romance and revelation. Originally from France, Nicole Dargère has lived in British Columbia for over thirty years where she has written several successful plays and musical comedies for children. Mystery Valley, her first novel, reflects the author's fascination with the landscape, legends and First Nations culture of B.C. Je vous invite à voir le site web de cette histoire qui se passe vers la fin du 19ème siècle dans l'ouest canadien, dans une tribu qui vit (encore de nos jours) en bordure de la rivière Harrison. Ce roman vous apprendra comment vivaient les indigènes à l'époque. De plus, vous découvrirez une légende... qui continue d'exister dans ce petit coin de paradis. My novel has been translated in English. You will find more information on my website hereunder.
