PHANTOMS OF THE PRAIRIE
By John W. Laundré, University of Wisconsin Press, 2012
Paperback

Last seen in the 1880s, cougars (also known as pumas or mountain lions) are making a return to the plains regions of the midwest. Their comeback, heralded by wildlife
enthusiasts, has brought concern and questions to many regarding the possibility of having these large predators in our midst once more. Will the people of the region make room for cougars? Can they survive the highly altered landscape of the midwest? is there a future for these intrepid pioneers if they head even farther east? Using GIS technology, and historical data, among many other methods, Phantoms of the Prairie takes readers on a virtual journey, showing how the cougar might move over the landscape with minimal human contact. Drawing on his years of research on cougars, John W. Laundré offers an overview of what might be regarding the return of cougars to their ancestral prairie homeland.

 “Dr. John Laundré has tackled an extremely timely and complicated subject. His assessment of cougar re-expansion into the Midwestern and eastern United States is based on latest research, as well as his own biological expertise and long field experience. Once he spells out the biological basics, however, Laundré boldly speculates regarding the future of and human responses to this amazing current phenomenon. His commentary will alternately please and rankle readers.”
—Harley Shaw,
author of Soul Among Lions and
Stalking the Big Bird

“The return of the American lion to the Great Plains and Midwest is a riveting tale. With the eye of a detective, the mind of a trained scientist, and the heartfelt passion of a conservationist, cougar biologist John Laundré deftly sets its stage, giving voice to this fascinating—and absolutely necessary—predator. The successful return of this long lost species to Middle America, and hopefully beyond, will be tribute not just to the cat’s remarkable adaptability and resiliency, but to human tolerance and understanding as well.”  —Jay Tischendorf,
veterinarian, founder and director
of the American Ecological Research Institute

John W. Laundré has studied cougars for more than twenty years in both the United States and Mexico. As vice president of the Cougar Rewilding Foundation, he advocates the return of cougars to their former territorial range. A Wisconsin native, he is currently an adjunct professor of biology at the State University of New York at Oswego.
