    1. Here s my review for Listening to Cougar, originally published in Southwestern American Literature Some people regard Puma concolor primarily as a menace to livestock, not to mention the occasional suburban poodle Their rare attacks on humans draw extraordinary attention, but the fact remains that the average American is far likely to die choking on a Twinkie than getting mauled by a mountain lion.Cougars have long been a source of fascination, but relatively little knowledge has been acquired [...]

    2. A series of essays by solid authors on mountain lions The essays run the gamut from mystical to scientific to actual sightings A fun read.

    3. A perplexing collection of personal experiences, fiction, scientific observation, and New Age hokum Ostensibly a collection to help us understand cougar, it mainly as it must shows how humans interpret their own experience then lay some of it on nature, in this case, on cougars.The worthwhile Several of the personal encounters were interesting as personal stories A Barry Lopez short story has little to do with cougars, but is lovely none the less Sanctuary by biologist David C Stoner is a very g [...]

    4. Not my favorite book regarding cougar ecology and conservation, not by a long shot The short essays included are very much a mixed bag, both in content and in informational value Some essays are written from the perspective of scientists in the field, and these are generally enlightening, if short Others are observational from the perspective of lay people, and these also provide a different kind of insight, though insight that I feel is underdeveloped However, the fictional piece included adde [...]

    5. Many authors submitted short stories to this book Some of them, I learned a lot about the plight of this beautiful cat I didn t know that people were still hunting it with dogs and guns It s no wonder that you don t see this animal as it is a solitary creature and hunts usually at night.The stories varied with the hunting, studying and different peoples Indians such as the Navajos rituals with the cat I really enjoyed the story of the woman on a vision quest who sat near a cougar It was awesome [...]

    6. Though several of the selections in this collection were fine pieces of natural history writing, the book felt uneven The nature of the mountain lion cougar, painter, ghost cat, etc makes it difficult to study and write about, but a handful of the selections read like nothing than random sightings they failed to make a greater point Finally, some selections felt tangentially related at best bits of myth or legend or discussions of spirit animals, without a thorough connection to the physical cr [...]

    7. The sole piece of fiction adds an intriguing and vital piece to this collection of essays It s a well written story and ties in well The entire book was great

    8. It is a collection of essays, some are good, some are not so good Overall, I would say it is a good book.

    9. Interesting stories, although I wish a couple of them hadn t been included I didn t get the book to read glorified accounts of cougar hunts Not my cup of tea.

    10. I learned a lot about a beautiful animal Some of the stories were hard to read as they had a not so pleasant ending for the cougar.
