Yellowstone backcountry ranger Will McCarroll is every poacher and trapper's worst nightmare. His tireless defense of endangered wildlife has made him a national hero, but when Will's anger over legislation allowing loaded guns in national parks causes him to break the rules one time too many, he finds himself transferred from his beloved Yellowstone to Montana's Glacier National Park. In this edgy eco- and political-thriller, Will soon finds in Glacier a wilderness worth defending--and under siege from illegal trappers, a right-wing radio talk show hosting a predator derby, and members of a radical offshoot of the American Rifle Foundation.
When Yellowstone Magistrate Judge Annie Peacock realizes Will has been lured into Glacier's backcountry as part of an ARF plot to silence him, she enlists the help of Johnny Yellow Kidney, Glacier National Park's wolverine biologist. Aided by locals from the Blackfeet reservation, Annie and Johnny's quest to warn Will ends up a race for time--one whose outcome will impact not only Will, but the lives of the two- and the four-leggeds he's sworn to protect as well.
April Christofferson introduces us to Montana's wild and wonderful "Crown of the Continent" in "Trapped."

Praise for April Christofferson

"Set against the beauty of Yellowstone National Park, this exciting romantic ecothriller pits the love of animals and justice--and the love between man and woman--against true evil. It's a powerful, multilayered story."

"Taking the readers deep into the ecosystem, politics, and wilds of Yellowstone National Park, Christofferson weaves an engrossing romantic thriller that grabs your heartstrings and clutches your throat. A terrific read!"
--Daniel Kalla, author of "Cold Plague "on "Alpha Female"

"In "Alpha Female", April Christofferson has penned a shrewd, sensitive and cautionary tale about the environment and our place within it. Seldom has any writer handled the mix of information and story with such skill and aplomb, effortlessly managing the delicate blend of romance and suspense. Compulsively readable and impossible to put down, "Alpha Female "is destined to dominate its terrain."
