Author: Charles de Lint
Not far from the city there is an ancient wood, forgotten by the modern world, where Mystery walks in the moonlight. He wears the shape of a stag, or a goat, or a horned man wearing a cloak of leaves. He is summoned by the music of the pipes or a fire of bones on Midsummer's Evening. He is chased by the hunt and shadowed by the wild girl.

I get the feeling that de Lint writes the same book over and over again-- plucky heroine from hardscrabble background who reads a lot of fantasy novels meets misunderstood pagan mystery creatures. That said, they're well-written for the most part, as is this one.

I really enjoyed this story but it was a rather odd one--the Mafia in rural Canada is an interesting mix, especially when you add in a hidden village and some earth spirits. It's a keeper. And it prompted me to read "Wind in the Willows"--a book I never read as a child.
