The unforgettable story of a bobcat kitten who changed the life of everyone he met.





Forrest Bryant Johnson served nine years with the US Army, rising to the rank of Captain. Johnson is an experienced explorer and a professional at conducting scenic desert tours. He reports with authority and full knowledge on all the animals who must survive in the harsh environment of the Mojave Desert. He is the author of Hour of Redemption, Phantom Warrior, and The Last Camel Charge. He resides in Las Vegas, Nevada with this wife and pets.





Animal lover Johnson found a cat caught in a deadly cactus. When he brought it home, he discovered that it was a bobcat. Determined to raise the animal, anyway, Johnson and his wife gave Trooper nearly free reign to come and go, which he did. It helped that they lived in the desert and were able to move to a ranch. Trooper seemed to act like a magnet, as more stray animals found their way to the Johnsons: two black kittens, a scarred cat called Fat Face, and a peacock. All these visitors found new homes, except for one yellow cat that Trooper adopted as his protegé. Short chapters function as episodic adventures, some more dramatic than others, and Johnson does his best to create enough mystery for readers to keep turning the pages. He also introduces us to supportive vet Doctor Marg, the Johnsons' neighbor Jim, and their hired hand, Herman. This is just right for readers searching for a warm portrait of an unusual cat and the people who loved him. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
