trapped in a world that time forgot

Josh is hitchhiking his way from Massachusetts to Dallas and a new life he didn't ask for and doesn't want, when he is beaten, robbed, and abandoned beside a remote mountain road. He awakes in a strange, primitive village called Canara, seemingly hidden from the modern world, with no cars or telephones or electricity.

But are the people of Canara Josh's rescuers or his jailers? As he slowly heals from his injuries and the tragedy he has been running away from, Josh begins to realize that Canara is far stranger than just an isolated community passed over by time. How can hills and trees shift in place, and even buildings appear and then vanish? Why can't he escape from Canara? And does he really want to?

Synopsis:

Recently orphaned Josh is hitchhiking from Massachusetts to his aunt's home in Texas when he is robbed, beaten and abandoned in the Appalachians. Rescued by Melungeons, descendants of early Portuguese settlers' of the area, he is taken to their primitive village, with no links to the 20th century. "This spooky page-turner had us biting our nails the entire way through."--"Seventeen."
