In the 1990s, three times as many people were attacked my mountain lions as had been attacked in the previous century. These shy predators must kill to survive, and in areas where their habitats are shrinking, human-cat encounters are on the rise. "Stalked by a Mountain Lion" tells the stories of attacks and strange encounters between cougars and people and offers a sensitive look at the often complex issues surrounding their interactions.

This book's gift to its readers is a humbling, sobering, and necessary perspective on nature and on our inability to accomodate its terrible beauty.--Richard Manning, author of Food's Frontier and Inside Passage
