KIRKUS REVIEW

The adventure, suspense and dangers of hunting American lions as told by a man who has spent ten years tracking cougars, jaguars and bob cats up and down the canyons and across the ranges of New Mexico and the Southwest. The author learned- from an old hermit hunter- the secrets of lion hunting, went out on special request to trail particular lions that had menaced livestock or ranch houses. Here is the progression of the hunt, from the picking up of the scent or spoor by the dogs, or the location of the victim, to the final bagging of the game. Hibben ends with a spectacular feat, the literal tail-grabbing of a lion which he had treed, lassoed, and brought down alive... For the sportsman, active or passive participant in the field.
