An invasion? For teenagers Dryfly Ramsey and Shadrack Nash, poor and ignorant in the worlds terms but rich in the lore of the magical Miramichi, the annual influx of American anglers, with their money, fishing gear, and thirst for salmon seems like one, and it sets the stage for action. A cast of quirky, unforgettable characters Nutbeam, a large-nosed, floppy-eared hermit; Shirley, Brennan Sidings toothless postmistress and Ramsey family matriarch; and Buck, who appears once a year to sire another child conspire to capture the imagination in Herb Curtiss now classic novel. And what of the Whooper, that mystical beast whose cries result in amazingly tall tales? In The Americans are Coming, the voices of Brennan Siding ring out in the rich vernacular of New Brunswicks Miramichi region, a world immersed in myth, folklore, and the sulpherous belch of a nearby pulp mill, and where ghosts and demons are as real as the Lone Ranger or the spring run of gaspereaux. With a new afterword by David Adams Richards.
