    Steve is called upon by an old friend to solve a particular problem : the capture of a rare golden cougar.

    When a professional hunter is hired to kill the beast, also known as Taneha, Steve by-passes the red tape to get the big cat to safety as quickly as possible.



    After arriving in macho land, Kanab County, and trying to persuade a female guide, EJ (played by Jess Walton), to help him, Austin sets off for the mountains, courageous, hopefull and a little naieve.

    Soon he finds himself caught in the middle of a battle of wills between the hunter, Mr. Bleeker and his gang, the ferocious EJ who has a complicated set of personal problems and reasons to kill, and Taneha himself, mysterious and smart.



    In the final scenes we get to see surprising images of the very close encounter between Lee Majors and the cougar!



    This is a high standard production. The cast, the writing, the direction, the new 'light' soundtrack, the 'modern' eco-conservation-theme, all make a great episode, and very enjoyable to watch.



    Not surprisingly, Lee Majors gives in a Western setting like this, his best.



    Wild frontiers and bionics are a perfect mix.moreless
