Jim Williams will discuss his new book, “Path of the Puma,” Saturday at Casey’s in Whitefish.

Whitefish Review will host wildlife biologist and author Jim Williams at Casey’s in Whitefish on Saturday, Dec. 8, for a slide show, reading and discussion of “Path of the Puma — An Expert’s View of the Big Cat’s Fight to Find and Preserve Its Wild,” (Patagonia Works, 2018) a new book about the remarkable resilience of the mountain lion.

Williams has been working for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks for over 27 years. He has worked on mountain lion ecology issues in Montana, as well as in the Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile throughout his career.

After decades of working with local communities to conserve mountain lions and other large carnivores, Williams’ book explores how wildlife thrives where conservation, community and culture overlap. During a time when most wild animals are experiencing decline in the face of development and climate change, the intrepid mountain lion — also known as the puma and the cougar — has been quietly and secretly reclaiming historic habitats in the United States, Canada and South America.

In addition to the slideshow, authors Douglas H. Chadwick and Michael Jamison will join Williams for a lively panel discussion.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and Williams will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.whitefishreview.org or call 261-6190.
