Found my diary from 1962 with a list of books read complete with ratings. Alas, no comments. This one was from the paperback series that you could buy through school. We got a catalog to pick from & ordered the books- probably for a whopping 35 to 50 cents each. Still have a few around someplace. I was on a real kick reading animal stories- this was about a mountain lion.
My absolute favourite book as a kid. I was obsessed with cougars for years afterwards. I rescued a copy of it off the back shelf of my elementary school because they said they were going to toss anything left at the end of the year to prepare for renovations. Copies of this seem hard to come by, so I'm glad I did.

This was one of my favorite books as a kid. I read this book over and over. I was taken by the story. He lives a life where so much is difficult, yet he prevails. One regret I may have in my own life is that I did not take his example to heart... not yet anyway.
I read this book as a child and it has stuck with me though the years. I haven't had much luck finding a copy of it to re-read, but once I do I am going to purchace it! I love animals and in particular cats especially the cougar :D
One of the few books from my childhood that I still think about on a regular basis, this book shaped my early love of animal and my views on wildlife preservation. I hope to pick up a copy and pass it on to my grandchildren.

One of my favorites as a kid. After reading this, I would go to the local museum in the town where I grew up and just stare at the cougar and panther they had on display.

Classic old-timey wildlife novel about a cougar's life (albeit very violent. Prey animals, cougars and hunting dogs alike getting ripped to shreds all over the place).
