5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book !!! 15 March 2015
By Doug Decker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I recently finished reading this book The Ghost Walker by RD Lawrence. It was such a great read. His knack for recording details of his experiences and surroundings absolutely help the reader to see and feel what he was going thru while spending time studying nature. In this case studying Puma's in Northern Canada. After reading 3 of his books (The North Runner, Secret Go the Wolves and now this book), it is clear that he possessed a gift to be able to somehow forge a connection with animals that allowed him and them to reach mutual understandings and patience with each other. It is no wonder that the Canadian Ministry repeatedly presented awards to Mr Lawrence for his studies and reporting of nature within the Canadian borders. His books are fascinating and great studies of nature.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great outdoor/wilderness adventure classic 7 March 2014

This is an older book that I stumbled upon looking for more outdoor wilderness reading. I love it!! It reminds me of "Never Cry Wolf". I like Lawrence's writing style and description of his adventures while studying the elusive mountain lion. This may be older but it reads like it was today. I will read more of R.D. Lawrence but I must admit I didn't want this to end. If you like anything to do with outdoor wilderness adventures this book is a must! Most, if not all, of his books seem to be available through used bookstores through Amazon. I will look for and order a few more...

for my 98 year old step Mom who lent her copy to someone who never returned it. She was delighted to have it again, sat right down and started to read.

Lawrence is my favorite author and I have read most of his books repeatedly. He loves animals as I do and in this world where they are abused it is a pleasuure to find a person who loves and respects them

5.0 out of 5 stars A Man with Two Souls 6 June 2001
By haubgoblyn - Published on
This has to be one of my most favorite books of all time! R.D. Lawrence not only gives a factual accounting of the lifestyle of the mountain lion in situ, he does it with an incredible empathy. His description of the wilderness habitat of the cougar and its fellow inhabitants is breath-takingly painted with masterful wording; it draws you in, it brings you THERE. His feeling for the object of his study is incredibly personal,insightful,concise, and haunting in its attitude of acceptance of the almost mystical relationship he feels with the species. When he first physically encounters Ghost,"his" cougar,he speaks of feeling as if he was two separate entities: the factual,observant scientist and the curious,awe-struck, vulnerable human. He DOES give much information on the cougar,but you can also sense the terrible anguish he feels,personally, about the loss of each one(in other parts of the book) and his tremendous concern in the survival of the species as a whole. Mr. Lawrence treats each individual cougar AS a TRUE individual;a creature with its own personality, not with just the cold,impersonal categorizing title of "animal". The vibrancy of his attitude of "fellow-creature" towards this wonderful big cat makes me wonder if he isn't really a cougar in part, inside his soul. Mr. Lawrence, you have one very staunch fan and fellow lover of the mountain lion right here!
