by Rutherford G. Montgomery, Jerome D. Nenninger (Illustrator)
Far back in the wildest of the mountain country hides Yellow Eyes, the great mountain lion, the most cunning and powerful of his hunted kind. Beautiful and cruel, like all big cats, Yellow Eyes and his mate, The Golden One, are tawny shadows lurking in the forest. Rutherford Montgomery is known for his honesty in the portrayal of animal life. In his stories animals are animals, not beasts playing the parts of human beings in a false drama of the wilderness.

Lord God I shall sing
and lift the edges of me
all because someone
saw me and said so.
This is the life You chose me
to live, all twined up
with someone who sees,
eyes like bright hollow needles,
twin streams of Your love.

This children's book was part of my early reading. I love cats as much because of this book as anything else in my life.
