Move over Harry and Percy, there's a new kid in town. Or, more precisely, out of town. He's 11-year-old Meriwether Lewis Bowman, but he'd prefer it if you just call him Lew. He lives with his parents in the volcanic wilds of the Mt. Lassen area of northern California. With his Grandpa, who's six feet five and looks like an NFL linebacker, Lew finds that the wilds are much wilder than he could ever have imagined. It's a place where legendary beings like were-bears and chupacabras do exist and they're struggling for control of the natural world. Lew didn't want any part of their ancient fight, but now he's at the very center of it. He has only his wits, his best friends, the "Gift", and the Mog Pogs to help him battle some of the most powerful forces on earth. But then, it's like his Grandpa says: "Life is full of surprises, and they aren't all good. Sometimes you just have to make the best of things."
