    The Last Lobo Review

    At first, Jacob, who travels all over the world with his father, traveled to Hopiland Arizona, trying to convince his grandfather to move back home. It turns out Jacob does much more than convincing. When Jacob arrives in the beautiful desert in Hopiland with Buckley, 'someone he met on the plain going there' he hears about a possible lobo that has migrated over the boarder from Mexico. After only a few days, the lobo has been caught eating livestock and a large reward was put up for the person who kills it. In order to save the lobo, Jacob and his Uncle John will have to outsmart Jacob's cousin Marie¿s ex-husband, who just got out of prison. It¿s a race against time, to see who can get to the sacred creature first. The way Roland Smith describes the characteristics of the characters and the setting, really helps you understand the book, the characters and the struggles their going through. The Last Lobo has a beautiful desert setting. Smith¿s setting description is amazing. He describes every part of it, even down to the sent of the desert air. ¿I inhaled the sweet sage-scented air.¿ 'p.75' Smith even described the view from the town. ¿Walpi was built on the tip of the long mesa and presented a beautiful view of the rust- colored desert below.¿ 'p.18' The characteristics of the characters are very unique and different. Jacob is a patient and caring person. ¿I wasn¿t about to let Taw wander around the desert in Arizona!¿ 'p.7' He was so caring that he traveled all the way to Hopiland to make sure his grandfather was all right and to try to get him to come back home. He was patient when he waited hours for the lobo to come out. ¿I want you to camouflage yourself and sit in that hollow for¿ about five hours or so¿ 'p.159' Without the description of the characters characteristics and the description of the setting, The Last Lobo wouldn¿t be as great of a book as it is. In my opinion, The Last Lobo is a great book. It was very descriptive and it felt as if you were actually there. I also liked The Last Lobo because it had an interesting plot. I don¿t know of any other books that have the same plot.

    Teen hunts lobo

    My book is The Last Lobo it was a very entertaining book. The book was about a boy who didn't know a lot about were he comes from or how his ancestors are. So his grandfather finds out and he goes to the Indian reservation in which he comes from. He follows him because he is not in the greatest shape int he world and he is worried about him. When he gets there he finds his uncle who is hunting an exotic wolf called a lobo. His uncle needs his help so he asks him, actually he tells him. He needs his help before he does anything he tells his uncle that he has to find his grandfather. His uncle has other thoughts he tells him his grandfather is staying with him. The next morning his Uncle Buckley comes over and says when are we leaving to trap the lobo? The uncle says we can't leave until we find Earl (Earl wants to kill the lobo). That morning they found a good place to hide. They hid behind a place called flat rocks. By this time it is about 11:00 so they start howling. They trick Earl into coming to flat rocks and he says I knew the lobo was at flat rocks. So they say it just left we had a clear shot. Earl stays there for a long time and thinks the lobo is near when it is not. The next morning they start setting traps. Once the traps are set they have to stay there until the lobo is caught, but it never is so they have to wait for it to come to them so it is basically a showdown to see who gets it first. The boy has to get it with a tranquilizer so when the lobo passes he shoots with a tranquilizer and hits it with it. Then he sees Earl running after it so the girl jumps from a ledge and decks him. There are loud cracks it turned out Earl broke his ankle and his arm. They took him to a hospital. Then there are more lobos so they release them in Mexico. This is an interesting book I suggest everyone reads it.
