In an interesting twist on most stories about Native Americans, THE LAST LOBO features the Hopis as both the good guys--and the bad guys. Jake, the young hero, is only 15, but he's a kid with a lot of wildlife savvy, considerable outdoors skills. and an open mind about whatever life asks of him. He travels all the way from the jungles of Brazil to find his grandfather, who has returned to the family's native Hopi reservation in Arizona, where a Mexican wolf is causing havoc with ranchers and government officials alike. It's up to Jake and his grandfather's friend, Uncle John, to revive the old ways of hunting and trap the "lobo" unharmed before others kill it. Johnny Heller probably has the most authentic-sounding "boy's" voice in audiobooks today, but in "Lobo" he also manages to convey the voices of tribal elders with equal skill. This western adventure puts the reader in the saddle for one great ride. M.C. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
