Author: Carys Davies
When an American settler and widowed father, reads about the discovery made in the Kentucky Swamp, he leaves is farm and young daughter to find out if the rumours are true; that the giant monsters are still alive, and roam the uncharted wilderness beyond the Mississippi River.
Written with tenderness, West is the story of Bellman’s journey and of Bess, waiting at home for her father to return. It explores the courage of conviction, and the transformative power of grief, from an exceptionally talented and original British writer.
