Track of the Cat
Track of the Cat, the first in the Anna Pigeon series and winner of both the Anthony and the Agatha for best first novel, is set in Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Texas.
"This is the book that gave Anna Pigeon life. Guadalupe Mountains was my second duty station with NPS. There were a couple of folks in Texas who really needed to be dead. I spent a lot of time wandering the back country wondering how I could kill them and get away with it. Fortunately, Anna Pigeon came along; otherwise I might be writing you this from the penitentiary." Nevada
