The Ken Ward Series relates Ken's adventures as he transition from a star high-school baseball pitcher who must face the challenges of college life to a young man in charge of a dangerous expedition in the Amazon jungle. Along the way, Ken becomes an advocate for responsible logging and then, somewhat paradoxically, hunts mountain lions in the Grand Canyon.

1. In The Young Pitcher, high school senior Ken Ward is on top of the world: he's popular, a somebody. But as a freshman at Wayne University, Ken quickly discovers he's a nobody who's treated like dirt by upperclassmen.
2. The Young Forester follows Ken in his quest to become a forest ranger.
3. In The Young Lion Hunter, we find our young friend heading west to catch mountain lions—by roping them!
4. Ken Ward in the Jungle tells the story of Ken and his brother, Hal heading south of the border, into the steaming jungles of Mexico. Hal's job is to gather specimens for a museum; Ken's is to keep Hal out of trouble, and prove himself as a jungle explorer.
