From the vivid opening vista, high in craggy mountains, to the final haunting glimpse of a moonlit canyon, Nevada Barr’s first mystery, Track of the Cat, instantly caught the attention of readers and reviewers. Its popularity gained it both an Agatha and an Anthony Award.

The young naturalist, Anna Pigeon, has moved to the Southwest wilderness to be a park ranger. There, her days are filled with the physical demands of working in the Guadalupe Mountains and the satisfaction of living in this splendid land. Her peace is shattered one morning, though, when she discovers the body of another ranger deep in Dog Canyon. How did the usually cautious woman die? Although at first the evidence indicates an attack by a mountain lion, Anna soon suspects that there are craftier predators afoot in the wild grasses.

Fast-paced suspense and sharply defined characters will immediately sweep you up in the force of this compelling mystery. By the end, you’ll be nodding in satisfaction at the final twist and anticipating the next book in the Anna Pigeon series. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat’s performance highlights Anna’s savvy courage and determination to catch her prey.

    " This is the first of the series (unlike my usual, I am reading these completely out of sequence) which I am finally getting to. After Flashback it's sort of refreshing to return to the edgier, more guarded Anna Pigeon. "

    " Decent story... I might read another one by this author sometime. "

    " My first Nevada Barr. While somewhat formulaic in it's mystery it was enjoyable (and all the more so because of Ms. Barr's background as a ranger.) Definitely made me want to read another Anna Pidgeon. "

    " Barr describes the southwest Texas terrain nicely. Pigeon, still mourning the accidental death of her husband, now thinks she might be a lesbian after befriending a soft, pretty lady who wears dresses. Way too much 'd. She'd, he'd, Anna'd. "

    " I have been an NPS employee for a lot of years, so the inside-NPS reference (which are all true, by the way) made me smile, but I'm no sure I like the way the author chose to end the story, without tying up loose ends. Maybe I just need to read the next book? "

    " I love mysteries. So this fit well into my genre of books. The emphasis on the National park Service is interesting. I learned alot. I never considered the person to be the murderer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 1/15/2011

    " A solid first book in a terrific series. Character introduction is not as solid as the world in which Anna lives, but it's entertaining and edge-of-your-seat at times. I always like to start at the beginning, and while this isn't the best in the series, it's an important one. "

    " I really enjoy Nevada Barr She can get a little crude at times. But she is clever and I love reading about the National parks. A different venue for mysteries is nice. "

About the Author

Nevada Barr was born in the small western town of Yerington, Nevada, and raised on a mountain airport in the Sierras. Pushed out of the nest, she fell into theatre, receiving her BA in speech and drama and her MFA in acting before making the pilgrimage to New York City, then Minneapolis. For eighteen years she worked on stage, in commercials and industrial training films, and doing voiceovers for radio. During this time she became interested in the environmental movement and began working in National Parks across the country during the summers. Woven throughout these seemingly disparate careers was the written word. Nevada wrote and presented campfire stories, taught storytelling, and was a travel writer and restaurant critic. She has won both the Agatha and Anthony awards for best first mystery.
