Item description for JOKO by Kofoed Karl...

FACT: 1884. US Newspapers report the capture of Bigfoot by a train crew. They call the Sasquatch Jacko and say: "He resembles a human being with one exception; his entire body, apart from his hands and feet, is covered in hair. He possesses extraordinary strength." FACT: 1884. Bigfoot mysteriously disappears, presumably back into the wild. FACT: 1880s. James Gilchrist Swan, one of the most distinguished pioneers of the American North West, spends much time in the wilderness and records Native American folklore and mysteries in his journal. FACT: There is still a $1,000,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Bigfoot. THE STORY: In 19th Century America, young railroad hand Johnny and best friend Joko are on the run - from all mankind. Because the price on Joko's head is higher than that for the capture of any Wild West outlaw. He's Sasquatch; one of the last surviving members of the legendary and elusive Bigfoot race . a goldmine for unscrupulous circus and freak show owners. For a while, Johnny evades their relentless hunters by protecting Joko in civilisation by passing him off as a moonstruck teenage boy. But when their stalkers get too close for comfort, the desperate runaways take to the wilds, where their roles are reversed as Joko becomes Johnny's protector. In the wilderness, they meet the famous frontiersman James G. Swan, who takes them under his wing. But can a cunning disguise and modern education prepare the young Bigfoot for a place in the human race? Much more than a spellbinding adventure for readers of all ages: master story-teller Karl Kofoed seamlessly blends fact and myth to look at the world from two vastly different points of view and examine what it really means to be 'human'.

Reviews - What do customers think about JOKO?

An exploration into the wilderness of humanity..  Jan 6, 2007
Karl has done it again. This is a truely amazing story that although the 'sasquatch' premise is a dubious one, it grabs you quickly and puts you into the deep woods of the Olympics with Johnny and Joko. This story is appropriate for both young and old; and will grab readers from all age groups. The character development is very good, and the story is geographically sound. Recommended!
