Description: It’s the first day of summer in the swamps of South Louisiana. Twelve-year-old Cajun boys Billy Boudreaux and Nick Landry are preparing their “Swamp Camp” for an upcoming camp out when they encounter the elderly Mr. Pierre as he makes a mad dash to escape the legendary swamp monster, Rougarou. Breathless and terrified, he vows to abandon his home in the swamps of Pierre Part, Louisiana, and to never return.

Doubtful that the creature is anything more than a myth and wanting to help their neighbor, Billy and Nick set out to solve The Mystery of the Rougarou. In the course of their adventure, they stumble upon the hideout of an escaped convict, Lufroy Aucoin, and his dimwitted cousin, Gator Bait. To make matters worse members of the hillbilly mafia, run by the ruthless Roscoe Clinton, will be arriving soon to purchase the stolen property Lufroy has stock piled at this remote location.

After being captured, our young heroes must use all the skills and knowledge they have of this dangerous environment to not only make their escape, but to survive what will be the most difficult challenges they have ever faced. The boys will introduce you to the unique beauties of the swamp, unfortunately, with beauty, comes danger.
