After moving with his mother and stepfather to the High Sierra country, twelve-year-old Josh and his new friend Ashley get caught up in the hunt for a wiley old cougar.

For the young adult genre, "Cougar Chase" is a winner. Books like this are what kids should be reading!
12-year-old Josh Landis recently moved to the High Sierras in California, from Washington D.C. The new lifestyle is something he's still getting used to, along with adjusting to his new step-dad.
There are so many aspects I enjoyed:
1) The thrilling adventure of trails to be hiked, cliffs to be climbed, and a threatening cougar to be hunted.
2) The amazing respect shown towards animals of all species, whether cougars, deer, bears, or spiders.
3) The belief in God shown vividly throughout the story. Prayer works! Miracles happen!
At one point, Josh and his friend, Ashley, completely disregarded their parents' rules. They knew it was disobedient, but went ahead with their plan nonetheless. I think that's really the only thing I didn't quite approve of.
I'm hoping to read more books by this author. Can't wait to explore more of the High Sierras!
