Read full description of the books:
A chacina de lobos desencadeada pelos conquistadores do Oeste Americano ainda permanecia viva na memória daquela pequena cidade de Montana. Buck Calder, o impiedoso rancheiro que a dominava, alimentava aliás o ódio dos habitantes para com aqueles animais. Protegida pelo sistema legal, a bióloga Helen Ross chega à cidade empenhada em defender aquela espécie agora em vias de extinção. Para isso vai ter de enfrentar uma população revoltosa e assustada e de gerir a forte paixão que irá nascer entre ela e o filho do seu maior inimigo...
Do mesmo autor de O Encantador de Cavalos, uma obra já levada ao cinema pelas mãos de Robert Redford, um romance épico acerca do amor redentor e do inquietante confronto entre o homem e a natureza.

Nicholas Evans was born and grew up in Worcestershire, England. He studied law at Oxford University, graduating with first class honors, then worked as a journalist for three years on the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He then moved into televsion, producing films about US politics and the Middle-East for a weekly current affairs programme called Weekend World. It was during this time that he traveled a lot and got to know the United States.
In 1982 he started to produce arts documentaries - about famous writers, painters and film-makers, several of which won international awards (films about David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Patricia Highsmith). In 1983 he made a film about the great British director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, etc). Lean became a friend and mentor and persuaded Evans to switch from fact to fiction.
For the next ten years, Evans wrote and produced a number of films for television and the cinema. In 1993 he met a blacksmith in the far South-West of England who told him about horse whisperers - people who have the gift of healing traumatized horses. Evans started work on what was to be his first novel.
Published in the fall of 1995, The Horse Whisperer has now sold about fifteen million copies across the world. It has been the number one bestseller in about 20 countries and has been translated into 36 languages. It was also made into a movie, starring, produced and directed by Robert Redford.
The Loop and The Smoke Jumper, Evans's second and third novels, were again an international bestsellers, topping the bestseller lists in many countries. The Smoke Jumper was published in a paperback edition on July 30, 2003. Evans lives in London and Devon, England.
