The Mud Man by Author Donna Marie West

The Mud Man is a book written by Author Donna Marie West.  I was very intrigued by the research that must have been put into writing this book.

With a total of 391 pages and published by Manta Press Ltd, The Mud Man is about anthropologist Veronica Booth who is called to consult on a dig in northern British Columbia, she expects to discover the usual remnants of early indigenous life. She never imagined finding a man preserved a metre deep in a thawing bog. More shocking still—he’s alive, albeit barely. The mud man, as Veronica initially thinks of him, matches no missing person reports, and his DNA is like nothing on record. Radio-carbon dating of his clothes and items found with him suggest an impossible age of 9,500 years! As he slowly recovers, the mysterious man reveals a host of surprises, stunning Veronica and those growing close to him. But can a man who lived a millennia ago adapt to life in the modern world?

In reality, I didn’t want the book to end, but loved that the ending remained true to each character.  I really enjoyed reading this book, and truly recommend it to all.  It’s literally well written, crafted and a definite page turner.
