Jim Williams is a hunter, biologist and conservationist in Montana. His lifelong passion has been wild cats – particularly the mysterious creature called mountain lion, cougar, or puma. His new book, Path of the Puma, traces the remarkable conservation success story of cougars across the western hemisphere. Mountain lions are staging a remarkable comeback in North America, in large part thanks to the secure habitat they find in the public lands of the American West. From there, they have stealthily spread to Wisconsin, Illinois, even Connecticut and Tennessee.
