Heartwarming survival story -- great boys' adventure. Or anyone's adventure, really, because who WOULDN'T want to accidentally befriend a lonely, abandoned tame cougar who just wants a buddy to scratch his ears and rub his belly? Be warned, you may end up watching pet cougars on YouTube for hours afterward.

I also really liked the author's note as to why he wrote this novel - it's based off a real game-hunting island that he wanted to "show for what it was, anything but sport."

To me this one was a Typical Walt Morey book. Not quite as interesting but still a good book.
