An Insightful Look Into Field Biology

At one time, my favorite wild cat was the snow leopard (it is now the caracal, with sand cats, lynxes, bobcats, and fishing cats all placing above the snow leopard, which I still love). So I read this book. I found it very interesting. While this book dealt with snow leopards, and has an excellent description on the snow leopards by Rodney Jackson at the end of the book, Hillard spends more time describing what it was like for her and Jackson to be on the field, the personality clashes with other biologists, and the thrill of getting to see snow leopards in the wild. This book will take you to a place you've never been, and make you want to join them (though you won't want to get bit by a snow leopard as Jackson once was).

A great read!

A great book that can just pull you right into it! Big cat lovers, conservationists, and anyone who likes remote field work might enjoy this one!

The best nonfiction book I've read!

It keeps you interested throughout the entire book. It feels like you are right there with her. It is a good book for any cat lover.
