    1. It was a fun book. I have always enjoyed Lawrence's writing, and his firsthand account style makes it so much more engaging than similar, but third person, stories. This doesn't rank at the top of my list of Lawrence books because it was too much of a novel/fiction account. Something I have come to love about his books is the firsthand nature of the story (which this had) and his simple personal account, his thoughts and feelings at the time of each encounter (something I missed in this book). D [...]

    2. Unusual book. Part old fashioned western and outdoor/adventure story but mostly animal story, the book was exceptional for an animal story (Author R.D. Lawrence was a well known naturalist and nature writer so this is no surprise) and reasonably good for the adventure story part. I very much enjoyed the scientific information on the pumas, and the storyline following the white puma (referred to as “the white tom”) seemed very realistic. There was a lot of detail about the mother of the puma [...]

    3. Although this story got more unlikely by the page, it is impossible not to like it. I found myself cheering for the pumas and hoping against hope that none would get killed -- even though the mother's death had already been predicted. it was inevitable that the white male kitten would survive (note title), but the fact that he grew to trust some humans and hate others -- well, it IS a novel. The many confrontations with bears in which he never got a scratch also seems improbable, but what do I k [...]

    4. It really is rare to find a quality naturalistic animal story that tries everything it can to NOT humanize the animal protagonist. This is one of those books, and it exceeded my expectations in telling the story of an albino puma from birth to beyond. It's a bit like an anti-"White Fang" in that regard, especially with the chapters involving the hunters.

    5. Awesome wildlife story, so awesome that I can't believe it was only published in 1990 and not 30 years earlier. Because it definitely fits right in with all those classics, and only improves by being noticeably longer.

    6. This book captivated me, despite the redundancy of the word 'spoor'. That is literally its only flaw for me. The book struck a clear, strong note in me.
