Shadow Cat

Encountering the American Mountain Lion

Book - 1999
Rate this:
The mountain lion is one of the last icons of American wilderness, and it is making a startling comeback. Whether called cougar, puma, or mountain lion, this wild cat is a fearsome predator, an elusive loner, and a mythic creature. In a potent gathering of twenty writings from the likes of David Quammen, Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, Pam Houston, Ted Williams, and Rick Bass, this book describes their natural history, encounters with humans, and the politics of predators. As civilization invades more of this animal's natural turf, suburban encounters will increase, and the next cat one of us sees may be a cougar, not a calico.
