Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Man with Two Souls 5 Jun 2001
By haubgoblyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This has to be one of my most favorite books of all time! R.D. Lawrence not only gives a factual accounting of the lifestyle of the mountain lion in situ, he does it with an incredible empathy. His description of the wilderness habitat of the cougar and its fellow inhabitants is breath-takingly painted with masterful wording; it draws you in, it brings you THERE. His feeling for the object of his study is incredibly personal,insightful,concise, and haunting in its attitude of acceptance of the almost mystical relationship he feels with the species. When he first physically encounters Ghost,"his" cougar,he speaks of feeling as if he was two separate entities: the factual,observant scientist and the curious,awe-struck, vulnerable human. He DOES give much information on the cougar,but you can also sense the terrible anguish he feels,personally, about the loss of each one(in other parts of the book) and his tremendous concern in the survival of the species as a whole. Mr. Lawrence treats each individual cougar AS a TRUE individual;a creature with its own personality, not with just the cold,impersonal categorizing title of "animal". The vibrancy of his attitude of "fellow-creature" towards this wonderful big cat makes me wonder if he isn't really a cougar in part, inside his soul. Mr. Lawrence, you have one very staunch fan and fellow lover of the mountain lion right here!

Lawrence is my favorite author and I have read most of his books repeatedly. He loves animals as I do and in this world where they are abused it is a pleasuure to find a person who loves and respects them
5.0 out of 5 stars Great outdoor/wilderness adventure classic 7 Mar 2014
By william richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an older book that I stumbled upon looking for more outdoor wilderness reading. I love it!! It reminds me of "Never Cry Wolf". I like Lawrence's writing style and description of his adventures while studying the elusive mountain lion. This may be older but it reads like it was today. I will read more of R.D. Lawrence but I must admit I didn't want this to end. If you like anything to do with outdoor wilderness adventures this book is a must! Most, if not all, of his books seem to be available through used bookstores through Amazon. I will look for and order a few more...
