Mystery Valley



I am pleased to announce the launch of my novel in English : MYSTERY VALLEY


A captivating tale of love and legend, Mystery Valley brings to life a late nineteenth century First Nations community near Harrison Hot Springs, BC. At a time of early contact with Europeans, Luyana, an elder of the Chehalis nation, finds an abandoned sasquatch infant on the banks of the Harrison River. Sheltering the creature, Luyana secretly raises it until she can no longer hide its presence from the community, who eventually welcome him as a brother. When intruders arrive in search of a trophy sasquatch, the Chehalis unite to protect the creatures who live deep in the hills in a place they call Mystery Valley. These hunters also threaten the way of life of a peaceful people living in harmony with nature. A first novel of myth and imagination based on extensive research into First Nations culture, Mystery Valley takes the reader on an intriguing journey of romance and revelation.

Originally from France, Nicole Dargère has lived in British Columbia for over thirty years where she has written several successful plays and musical comedies for children. Mystery Valley, her first novel, reflects the author's fascination with the landscape, legends and First Nations culture of B.C.

Endorsement from Katrine Geneau:

"Nicole DARGERE's Mystery Valley is a fascinating page-turner highlighting the relationship between a baby Sasquatch and its adoptive mother, an elder of the Chehalis Nation near Harrison Hot Springs in British Columbia. This tale not only brings to the fore the continuing question of the existence of the Sasquatch, it also reveals the author?s unique perspective of the raison d'être of these mythical creatures. Throughout the novel, Ms. Dargere shares her extraordinary depth of knowledge of the customs and culture of the Chehalis people at the turn of the 19th century making for an informative and thought-provoking read!?
