    "This is one of the most recognizable novels in the world. One that most have read in their lives and have read to others. With that said, this product is not of good quality. The books are not full size. That takes away from me wanting to use this book. I wanted a full size paperback version of this classic, and the product failed to deliver that. "

    "Outstanding of the seven books I have reviewed (research) on the Cougar. This is a well researched book on my favorite local(Cascades, Bitterroots, and Rockies) big cat along with the Cheetah (endangered in Africa). And no political agenda or partisan agenda. Copywrite 2013.....much has been learned since by Pantera, Cle Elum Wa HS, and other research organizations (small locals and large) that should be put together for a better understanding of this big cat and not published, possibly an extension of this book. We, as caretakers, must learn to live in harmony with the wild animals and not just randomly kill/disturb the natural preditor/prey balance."

I didn't like the fact that I could almost predict what was going to happen before I even finished the chapter. Could have been better but not so bad that I wouldn't read another book from the author."
