    Unusual book Part old fashioned western and outdoor adventure story but mostly animal story, the book was exceptional for an animal story Author R.D Lawrence was a well known naturalist and nature writer so this is no surprise and reasonably good for the adventure story part I very much enjoyed the scientific information on the pumas, and the storyline following the white puma referred to as the white tom seemed very realistic There was a lot of detail about the mother of the puma and her life and her mate and the difficulties involved in hunting for and safely raising a litter of kittens in land that is invaded by humans I ve noticed in Lawrence s books that some reviewers don t like all the scientific detail I LOVE that I love reading an involving story where at the end I feel that I know a lot about some new subject The story wound up in a pretty satisfying way not always the case in nature stories.A minor negative for this book would be that some of the main human characters were like caricatures than fully developed characters But since the point of them was to carry forward the animal story, it s not really important.Since this book was published there have been multiple puma attacks some fatal in both British Columbia where this story is set, and in parts of the US Colorado, California, New Mexico , which is notable in that the biologist and naturalist characters in Lawrence s book are going off of premises that are not entirely accurate mountain lions WILL sometimes hunt, kill, and even eat people An excellent study of this is The Beast in the Garden The True Story of a Predator s Deadly Return to Suburban America

    It was a fun book I have always enjoyed Lawrence s writing, and his firsthand account style makes it so much engaging than similar, but third person, stories This doesn t rank at the top of my list of Lawrence books because it was too much of a novel fiction account Something I have come to love about his books is the firsthand nature of the story which this had and his simple personal account, his thoughts and feelings at the time of each encounter something I missed in this book Despite this last point, I still love it for what it was and would recommend it to other nature and wildlife lovers out there.

    Although this story got unlikely by the page, it is impossible not to like it I found myself cheering for the pumas and hoping against hope that none would get killed even though the mother s death had already been predicted it was inevitable that the white male kitten would survive note title , but the fact that he grew to trust some humans and hate others well, it IS a novel The many confrontations with bears in which he never got a scratch also seems improbable, but what do I know about pumas bears wolves marmots wolverines NOT MUCH Well, I probably know than I did before I read the book, but still The conservationists showed up just in time to save Cousins and Taggert again, somewhat improbable, but it was either that or bloodshed.

    It really is rare to find a quality naturalistic animal story that tries everything it can to NOT humanize the animal protagonist This is one of those books, and it exceeded my expectations in telling the story of an albino puma from birth to beyond It s a bit like an anti White Fang in that regard, especially with the chapters involving the hunters.

    Awesome wildlife story, so awesome that I can t believe it was only published in 1990 and not 30 years earlier Because it definitely fits right in with all those classics, and only improves by being noticeably longer.

    I read it so many times that the book actually got some loose sheets

    This book captivated me, despite the redundancy of the word spoor That is literally its only flaw for me The book struck a clear, strong note in me.
