In the Way, Way Out West, on top of the most untamed of plateaus, Augustus Fig arrives as the tallest of the tall to come along in many generations. At three men in height and six men in strength, some say he carries the dimensions of the great pioneer tall tale hero Mighty Big Pete. But when the young Augustus tries to follow in Pete’s larger-than-life footsteps, he stumbles as he attempts to tame a fearsome threat called the Reckoning.
With the help from his friends Sunny and Remington—and a giant-bull sidekick named Darlin', the towering Augustus wrestles with the threatening past of a sinister ghost town, fights soulless men known as Vacants, and tangles with all manner of gargantuan beasts. He also struggles against the weather-altering Specters, soul-leeching wood sprites, and a fabled monster turned real: the Chindara. And, as Augustus and friends move closer to the heart of the Reckoning, they come to comprehend its truth.
Praise for Augustus Fig:
“You will end up rooting for Augustus and his friends on their quest to wrestle with adolescent woes and ancient evils alike.” — Arizona Daily Sun
