Riassunto: [Read by Stefan Rudnicki]
The first Silver John novel.
In the wilds of Southern Appalachia lies Wolter Mountain - a sacred place for the Indians and their predecessors. But the land atop the mountain, taken over by two Englishmen, Brummitt and Hooper Voth, is undergoing frightening changes.
Strange evil things are terrorizing Luke and Creed Forshay who live at the foot of Wolter Mountain in the southern Appalachians, a sacred place for Indians and their predecessors. Two old-world Druids, disguised as Englishmen, are attempting to awaken pre-Indian spirits of the ancient mountain. Silver John and an Indian medicine man must collaborate to prevent certain death at the hands of blood-sacrificing priests.

Descrizione libro Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, 1979. Octavo, boards. First edition. The first Silver John novel. "John (whose last name is never given) is one of the few truly original series characters in contemporary dark fantasy: a quiet temperate man who has had a taste of the modern world and rejected it in favor of the homely pleasures and superstitions of the rural South . For the most part . the stories are successful attempts to work folklore and legends from the Civil War and the American Revolution into dark fantasy narratives . [In this novel] John thwarts a cult attempting to resuscitate supernatural forces that predate the settling of the country by Native Americans . [The John stories and novels] crystalize ideas for supernatural fiction that Wellman had been tackling as far back as the 1930s in WEIRD TALES and thus serve as an important bridge between the early modern horror tradition and contemporary dark fantasy." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-384.
