Description : The first book to cover the history and current status of the mysterious big cat Investigates the controversial question of whether wild cougars still inhabit the eastern United States Collects written accounts from the settlers who first encountered the animals and includes contributions from leading figures in the field When European settlers first reached the shores of North America, eastern cougars were plentiful, ranging up and down the coast of the present-day United States. By the beginning of the twentieth century, they had been almost entirely wiped out, victims of the same rapacity and ignorance that decimated wolf and bison numbers elsewhere in the country. Today, the continued existence of wild cougars remains hotly disputed, as do proposals to reintroduce cougars to the East. This groundbreaking anthology brings together accounts of early settlers and explorers, presents pro and con arguments on the wild cougar question, and examines the social and environmental implications of reintroduction. More than just a study of a single animal, this fascinating anthology probes America's troubled history with large predators and makes a vital contribution to the wildlife management debates of today.

Description : The cougar is one of the most beautiful, enigmatic, and majestic animals in the Americas. Eliciting reverence for its grace and independent nature, it also triggers fear when it comes into contact with people, pets, and livestock or competes for hunters’ game. Mystery, myth, and misunderstanding surround this remarkable creature. The cougar’s range once extended from northern Canada to the tip of South America, and from the Pacific to the Atlantic, making it the most widespread animal in the western hemisphere. But overhunting and loss of habitat vastly reduced cougar numbers by the early twentieth century across much of its historical range, and today the cougar faces numerous threats as burgeoning human development encroaches on its remaining habitat. When Maurice Hornocker began the first long-term study of cougars in the Idaho wilderness in 1964, little was known about this large cat. Its secretive nature and rarity in the landscape made it difficult to study. But his groundbreaking research yielded major insights and was the prelude to further research on this controversial species. The capstone to Hornocker’s long career studying big cats, Cougar is a powerful and practical resource for scientists, conservationists, and anyone with an interest in large carnivores. He and conservationist Sharon Negri bring together the diverse perspectives of twenty-two distinguished scientists to provide the fullest account of the cougar’s ecology, behavior, and genetics, its role as a top predator, and its conservation needs. This compilation of recent findings, stunning photographs, and firsthand accounts of field research unravels the mysteries of this magnificent animal and emphasizes its importance in healthy ecosystem processes and in our lives.

Description : To avenge his beloved, an old tracker comes out of retirement After years fighting the Apache for the United States Army, Carroll Cougar builds a cabin in the heart of the Texas prairie. When a local rancher tries to take it away from him, Cougar takes a stand, waiting in the trees when the rancher and his son come to attack. With a few shots from his .56 Spencer, he defends his property, believing that peace is his at last. But another disturbance soon follows, from a completely unexpected source. An old army buddy reaches Cougar with a letter from President Grant begging the tracker to join up for one last mission. It isn’t the president’s name that convinces him—it’s the name of the target: Solon Reineke, the gunman who murdered the only woman Cougar ever loved. For the sake of vengeance, he will pick up the trail one last time, even if it means never knowing peace again.

Description : Cougar’s Crossing “To read a book by Lillian Ross is to travel to another time and place with characters who quickly become family. Read this true-to-life novel to feel the essence of the rugged era on the Canadian prairies… raw, messy, inspired by hope and motivated by grit. Ross weaves a poignant drama of wounded love, jealousy and human emotion.” Corrine McConchie, Librarian Vancouver Excerpt from Iris Tuftin’s Editor’s Comment …Could this be ‘his’ remains, we wondered? The hated man who killed our Aunt Florence in 1921? …The facts were overwhelming – more fascinating than we ever imagined. Now the story of Cougar’s Crossing would have to be changed. We knew the truth – or most of it. A Historical Novel with a Mysterious Twist The loud, brash, irreverent Cougar Wright swore like a trooper and didn’t believe in a higher power than his own strength, but he loved his family and wanted them to join him in his struggle to tame the wilderness. His family’s dance with destiny in Alberta’s Northwest would shake his world and theirs.

P-22, the famed “Hollywood Cougar,” was born in a national park near Los Angeles, California.

Description : Army Captain Nicole Welsh’s premonitions of danger warn her more trouble is headed her way after her parents died in an unexplained car accident. Is it just her imagination that someone bad is out to get her? Her vacation to Galveston Island is meant to be a break from her awful job, breaking up with an unfaithful boyfriend, and getting over her parents’ deaths. But her best friend skips out on her, now a tropical storm wreaks havoc, she’s certain someone is stalking her, and she runs into a fellow cougar who might just be her salvation. Unless, he’s one of the bad guys. Scott Weekum is a finance officer at Fort Hood, Texas, having every intention of having a good time at Galveston Island, and rescuing a mermaid from the Gulf, who he envisions is in trouble. Supposedly, the tropical storm is moving out of the area, so he should be fine. What he doesn’t expect to find is that the mermaid is also an officer from Fort Hood, she has premonitions like he has, she’s a cougar, and she believes she’s in danger. Since he’d just broken up with a she-cat who had transferred to another post and he’s all alone, and she’s all alone, he’s determined to spend the time with Nicole. Except she seems to think someone’s stalking her, and her paranoia is beginning to rub off on him. Is she in danger? He’s not sure what to think, but has every intention of protecting her, whether she needs his protection or not.
