Twelve-year-old Amazon is flown from her English boarding school to America where she joins TRACKS, an organisation bent on rescuing rare animals from life-threatening situations.
Meanwhile, deep in the Siberian jungle, a mother Amur leopard is fighting for her own survival, and that of her cubs, against a dangerous and powerful predator, while a raging fire closes in on all sides. Amazon and her 13-year-old cousin are catapulted into action to save this rare creature before it is too late. But who can they trust? A pacey read, aimed at 9-12 year-olds who have a taste for adventure, this is the first in a series of authorized Willard Price books – our young heroes are Roger and Hal’s children from his original Adventure series.
