The Paradise Series
The son of the main character of the first four books sets out on an adventure of his own.
Little Eagle and his best friend, a mountain lion, are kidnapped by a pair of exotic wild game hunters. They are transported a long way from home in a windowless, hot, cube van with the intention of letting the young man die by being trapped with a live wild animal. The story is mainly about this friendship and the trip on foot, back home.
