Gavin McHenry is a lonely, restless man. Even among the beautiful and bountiful yuletide merriment of his cousin Arthur LeMagne’s Christmas feast, the RCMP constable stands apart, brooding and regretful. Then a strange Sasquatch on a sled crashes the party and challenges him to a cruel game. A kind of duel, it will lead to other tests along the way as a year hence Gavin goes in search of the beast the Dene Nation call Nuk-luk.rnrnIs the young constable just an old-fashioned Canadian adventurer or a retro Millennial adrenalin junkie? Gavin’s struggle for virtuous action and nobility of soul in a self-serving world of violent deceit and sexual treachery may be that of every man and woman alive today. In Sasquatch and the Green Sash, Keith Henderson’s narrator presents a scarily enchanting and thrilling tale of two determined, duty-bound adversaries. Gavin’s struggle is ours, and something to savour for sure…but maybe not too sweetly?rnrnSasquatch and the Green Sash is at once a translation and adaptation of the medieval English poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, from a time when parts of English culture were closer to Old Norse roots.
