The Eastern Cougar: Historic Accounts, Scientific Investigations, and New Evidence was published by Stackpole Books, 2005 on behalf of the nonprofit Cougar Rewilding Foundation, formerly the Eastern Cougar Foundation.

Co-edited by Chris Bolgiano and Jerry Roberts, this anthology brings together, for the first time ever, information on the confused history and controversial current status of the cougar in Eastern North America. Never before have scientifically reputable confirmations of field evidence — several dozen of them — been compiled in one publication.  Includes maps, historic and contemporary illustrations, and an extensive bibliography. This publication was used by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service for the official review of Eastern Cougar status.

Reviews

“The book is educational and provides an excellent glimpse into the cat’s current status by delivering enough evidence to convince even the skeptical of its possible persistence in the landscapes of the eastern United States.” 
— Samuel Skalak, Journal of Mammalogy, Volume 88, Issue 2 (April 2007), 
pp. 534-535.
