This is a great book from one of my favorite authors. I love that it teaches a little bit about the Native American cultures in that area (New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, etc.). I like Buckley a lot. He's cool. I like how the main character, Jake, and his grandfather's friend search for the lobo together and how they bond. I also like how they don't plan to kill the lobo.

I read this book because it was by an author that I liked. I read it thinking maybe it will be good. It was fantastic, I really liked the topic I thought it was interesting and creative. The characters all had unique traits and were all well described and had good personalities. This is probably one of my fvorite books.

B; A Nice short read while I was at work. From the Jr Fiction section about a 15 year old boy who helps his grandfather and the Hopi tribe catch a lobo (wolf). I think I picked this up because Lobo is the name of one of our fur herd.

One thing I enjoy about Smith's writing is that every book is different from the others. He covers a vast array of topics. I enjoyed learning about lobos (wolves) in this this story.

I hadn't realized that this was a sequel, of sorts, to Thunder Cave. And it's actually the third book, with Jaguar in between.

Enjoyed this -- now back to Jaguar.
