The author of The Zoo That Never Was and Voyage of the Stella has produced another winning nature adventure. Lawrence decides to study the elusive mountain lion in its native habitat and spends ten months alone in the Selkirk Mountains. This is his story of survival, but also the story of the relationship that develops as he tracks a single puma to learn its habits. Sometimes he is the one being stalked, but eventually the animals come to know and trust him.
