Book Description HTML

Fifteen-year-old Reggie Youngblood has a lot to be angry about. His father is deployed for a second tour of Iraq, his mother works long hours at a low-wage job, and a bully torments Reggie and his few friends at school. While struggling to find where he fits, Reggie stumbles upon an unexpected passion for studying the wildlife in his new Los Angeles surroundings. By studying the elusive mountain lion and its habits, Reggie discovers more about himself, his family, and his relationships than he ever could have imagined. In this coming-of-age novel that explores what it means to be a man and what it means to be an animal, Reggie learns to define the balance between instinct and intent, as well as fear and love.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tom Berquist

ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF Stalking Los Angeles. Growing up in the boondocks of Northern Minnesota, Tom dreamed of becoming a game warden. He loved the woods and vowed he’d never sit behind a desk working in an office. He left home, moved to New York and started his career in a cubicle as an advertising copywriter. After a lifetime in business and living in the Northeast, the journey of a wild animal captivated him. A young male mountain lion travelled 1700 miles from South Dakota to Connecticut in search of a mate. He was killed on a highway not far from Tom’s home. Soon after the author moved to Santa Monica, California, another mountain lion was killed by police a few blocks from his new home, on Tom’s birthday. The author’s love and respect for wild animals was re-kindled. At least he could now write about them. So Tom wrote this story to inspire young (and older) people to not give up on their dreams. NOTE: The author will be donating 25% of his book royalties to wildlife conservation.
