When Jake follows his grandfather Taw to the Hopi reservation where Taw was born, he finds trouble. The Hopi are upset about a Mexican wolf. Since there are no wolves in Arizona, some believe it's a ghost. Others want to kill it because it's hunting their livestock. Jake is sure of one thing: he must help his grandfather save the lobo. It could be the last of its kind. Ruthless hunters would do anything to collect the reward, including killing anyone who gets in their way. But Jake is willing to do whatever it takes to save this endangered creature from its most lethal enemy. Award-winning author and research biologist Roland Smith brings his 20 years of wildlife study to this action-packed adventure. Backed by Johnny Heller's narrative skill, Jake, who appeared in Jaguar and Thunder Cave, makes a powerful environmental statement.

"In an interesting twist on most stories about Native Americans, THE LAST LOBO features the Hopis as both the good guys--and the bad guys. Jake, the young hero, is only 15, but he's a kid with a lot of wildlife savvy, considerable outdoors skills. and an open mind about whatever life asks of him. He travels all the way from the jungles of Brazil to find his grandfather, who has returned to the family's native Hopi reservation in Arizona, where a Mexican wolf is causing havoc with ranchers and government officials alike. It's up to Jake and his grandfather's friend, Uncle John, to revive the old ways of hunting and trap the "lobo" unharmed before others kill it. Johnny Heller probably has the most authentic-sounding "boy's" voice in audiobooks today, but in "Lobo" he also manages to convey the voices of tribal elders with equal skill. This western adventure puts the reader in the saddle for one great ride. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
