The Onza. The Story of the Search for the Mysterious Cat of the Mexican Highlands

New York: Exposition Press, 1961. 1st Edition. Hardcover.
Signed with a warm inscription by the author.

For centuries, Indian myths and Hispanic legends have told of a mysterious large wildcat, the Onza, said to inhabit the mountains and jungles of Mexico's Sierra Madre Occidental. Not a jaguar, not a mountain lion, the Onza is considered more elusive and ferocious than either.
