Review


Toby the Siamese cat finds himself struggling for survival in the Australian wilderness. He has no way of making it as humans have pampered him all his life. However, he meets up with a wild feline and has some of the best sex of his life. The next day humans find Roby returning him to civilization. Toby’s evening in the wild leaves behind a pregnant cat. That child struggles for survival against his natural enemies with the worst being the Bushmen. It is through the eyes of this feline that we see the wild “world” of the Australian Outback where survival is a 24/7 occupation.

CAT TRACKS will remind readers of The Bear, as the book is predominately told through the eyes of Toby’s offspring. Though fictionalized, the tale provides a non fiction account of surviving using the technique of personification so that the audience gets inside the cat and observes the wild through the feline’s senses. Gordon Aalborg provides a charming survival of the fittest novel that brings alive the Outback as rarely seen in nonfiction let alone a novel.
