About the book: 
Adventure, animals and action in the first authorized Willard Price book by award-winning author Anthony McGowan, for 8+ readers. Deep in the remote forests of Siberia, a mother Amur leopard, one of the rarest big cats in the world, senses danger. Something faster than any human and deadlier than any tiger. Meanwhile Amazon Hunt, aged twelve, is recruited from England by Tracks in America, ready to take off at a moment's notice to rescue wild animals under threat - no matter how great the danger. Now Amazon and her thirteen-year-old cousin Frazer must brave the Russian wilderness to save the Amur leopard, before a blazing forest fire wipes out the race - for good..."The good old-fashioned adventure romp brought up to date without losing the fun or the thrills". ("Independent"). "A pacy read aimed at 9-12 year olds with a taste for adventure". ("We Love This Book"). Anthony McGowan is a multi-award-winning author of books for adults, teenagers and younger children. He has a life-long obsession with the natural world, and has travelled widely to study and observe it. He has also written feature articles and travel journalism for "The Times", "Guardian", "Daily Telegraph", "Evening Standard" and "Mail on Sunday".
