the Mad Trapper Feb. 11 2012
By Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was written as a companion to the Discovery channel documentary about the search to identify Albert Johnson, the so-called "Mad Trapper of Rat River". It tracks the progress of assembling the forensics team and their discoveries along the way. Ms. Smith does cover the actual story of the manhunt, although the main focus is on the modern researchers' efforts and findings, as well as the author's own fascination with the story. She provides a lot of details about Johnson, who was a larger-than-life, yet real-life, historical character. Good photo inserts, though in the Kindle they come out in black and white so it's difficult to decipher the color-coded maps.
Well written account of the investigation of Albert Johnson April 20 2011

Ms. Smith did a fine job of recording the details of the ongoing saga of "The Mad Trapper." Her skills as a writer really saved the tale from the basic boring details of a research book.
