Dr. Walter Goins sat back in his chair as he looked at his computer screen. What it told him sent a shock through him. Dr. Goins was a world renowned biology professor and new-species researcher from the University of Manitoba. For months he had collected information from hundreds of documented encounters with the mysterious and legendary 'man of the forests' and now his computer models were showing him something he could dare to believe. Knowing he would receive only ridicule if he asked for funding from his University to hunt the illusive creature, Dr. Goins concocted a necessary deception, with the help of his protege, Dr. Rene Giraud, to initiate a project to find the creature, using his personal wealth to fund the effort. Six months later he would die from cancer, leaving his dream of discovering this previously undocumented and likely closest relative to Homo sapiens to his friend, Dr. Giraud. With no hope of financial support from the university and with Dr. Goins now gone, Dr. Giraud would convince TAM Ventures, Inc.'s founder, Thomas Miles, to take on the project of capturing Homo silvanus - the Forest Man. A savvy professional who was as comfortable discussing biological evolution with a university professor as he was discussing hostage release terms with a Somali pirate, Thomas Miles would put together a team to find and capture the beast using the latest scientific methods and technology. When a close associate told him he would be famous if the project was successful, Thomas Miles responded, "My goal is not famous, my goal is rich," thus setting into motion the age-old ethical dilemma of science versus financial gain. The search for their elusive prey will take many unexpected turns. Forest Man will test any preconceived notion you may have about the mysterious creature many people claim inhabits the vast wilderness of North America. The story reveals the problem a legitimate scientific enterprise would certainly face when presented with irrefutable evidence of the existence of the Forest Man."
