"The "Old Woman" lives in the wild, searching for food, raising her cubs, and avoiding the two-legged creatures who come into her territory. But she is more than an animal -- she is a mythic creature who haunts the lives and the dreams of men. Joseph Brandt has been captivated by the mountain lion's legend since childhood, and one day he steps into the forest to seek her out. A classic in the making, The Hunter and the Old Woman is a mesmerizing portrait of two animals united by a shared destiny."--Provided by publisher.
