Annotation: Skilled predators prized by hunters and cursed by ranchers, mountain lions are the wild soul of the American West. Now a wildlife biologist brings you nose to nose with the elusive cougar. Harley Shaw shares dramatic stories culled from his years of studying mountain lions, separating fact from myth regarding their habits while raising serious questions about mankind's relationship with this commanding creature.

"Most of us move into the country because we love wildlife", writes Shaw. "But none of us will tolerate having our pets or children eaten.... When lion/human encounters occur, the lion (or bear, or wolf) always ultimately loses".

Soul among Lions offers us a chance to consider the true meaning of that loss.
