Staff Reviews


For the hobby naturalists and carnivore fanatics, this book is an observation of not only pumas, but about the importance of biodiversity. Pumas are deeply fascinating and misunderstood creatures, that all of us should understand that carnivores (especially pumas/mountain lions/panthers) are a necessity to our changing environment – they keep things in balance and provide for big and small creatures alike. By the end of the book, the term “everything is connected” becomes apparent.
