So he joins aging field biologist samuel Johnson on the slopes of Mount Saint Helens, shadowing the hunting party through their walkie-talkies. But Dylan may be in more trouble than he thought -- Mr. Johnson is not the man he seems to be. Even as they are following Dr. Flagg's team, somebody is following Mr.Johnson, and on top of it all, Dylan is beginning to realize that his father may not be so crazy -- maybe, the Sasquatch does exist, and it's closer than Dylan ever guessed.
