Poor, poor Jonathan York. Such a mild-mannered fellow, wanting nothing more than a simple, predictable life, safe from the darker corners of the world. But when fate strands him in a sinister swamp, Jonathan must confront his greatest fears: thieves, swamp monsters, an evil ice cream conspiracy, and (gasp!) public speaking!
