But overshadowing Nyala's experience as an increasingly capable tracker is the fact that she herself is a tracked woman. For her, the ability to see a "footprint in soft grass outside a bedroom window" becomes a matter of survival. Nyala recounts life-and-death rescue missions yet questions the "action-junkie" approach to tracking lost people.

But Hannah Nyala's & Last Seen' has a stark honesty that captured me from the first paragraph and kept me interested all the way to her frank - and real world - closing page. Though I was conflicted that the word "conclusion" did not apply, because the build up to an airbrushed Hollywood final chapter would have undermined the gritty realism that permeates her life and that of her children, yet such an ending would have represented a wonderful reward for a life lived so hard. Battered, brutalised and initially broken, her story is heroic on a number of levels.
Hannah Nyala grew up in rural Mississippi, tracking animals through the woods to shoo them away from hunters' guns. Raised by increasingly religious parents, she jumped from their arms into a suffocating marriage with a man whose escalating violence rocked her life and threatened their children. Her escape from him is temporary and tainted-he repeatedly abducts the children-but allows her to polish nascent skills as a tracker on rescue teams in the national parks

Point Last Seen is a fantastic story of one woman's personal survival, growth and finding strength within herself. Nyala's calm, non self-pitying rendition of her story is powerfuly affecting, for this reader at least and likely many others
