Selected for the 2007 Amelia Bloomer Project list of recommended feminist literature for young readers.For thirty years, Lucinda Delaney Schroeder held an unusual government position: she was one of the handful of women special agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Her job: to investigate crimes against wildlife. Unlike the majority of hunters who respect both their prey and the laws, evidence was piling up against an unscrupulous outfitter who was decimating populations of big game in Alaska's Brooks Range. In August 1992, she accepted an assignment that forever changed--and endangered--her life. She left her husband and seven-year-old daughter behind in Wisconsin and posed as a big-game hunter in Alaska in order to infiltrate an international ring of poachers out to kill the biggest and best of that state's wildlife.

A Hunt for Justice recounts her dramatic story--a story she was not legally permitted to write about until her retirement in 2004.

Risking personal safety, Schroeder joined a team of government agents to expose and arrest the poachers. Posing as "Jayne," a divorcee who was willing to break the rules in order to hunt trophy animals, the diminutive blue-eyed blonde fooled criminals so wily that their crimes could only be cracked from within. A Hunt for Justice takes readers along on Schroeder's dangerous and exciting mission. More than simply an adventure or true-crime tale, it's a story of a woman surviving in a male-dominated field, a woman against the wilderness, and a wife and mother risking it all for a cause she believes in. Whether you are a crime buff, nature lover, sports hunter, or someone who just loves a gripping-first-person tale of justice triumphing over evil, this book is for you.

From the Back Cover:

Selected for the 2007 Amelia Bloomer Project list of recommended feminist literature for young readers In the heart of the Alaskan wilderness, a clandestine and unscrupulous hunting outfitter is illegally killing untold numbers of big game animals. His wealthy clients, mostly from Europe, insist that they hunt only the biggest and best of Alaska's wildlife.
In this rare look inside an undercover wildlife investigation, Lucinda Delaney Schroeder reveals how she infiltrates this iron-clad camp by posing as a trophy hunter. For eleven nerve-racking days, she gathers evidence intended to shut down what had become an out-of-control, international poaching ring. But in the end, would it be enough?
A Hunt for Justice takes readers along on Schroeder's dangerous and exciting mission as she puts her life on the line to crack this illegal hunting operation and bring to justice those who lived by the "creed of greed." More than an adventure, this true-crime story unveils the perils faced by a woman as she courageously pits herself against the Alaskan wilderness and goes undercover in a man's world to risk it all for a cause she believes in.

About the Author:

Lucinda D. Schroeder was a special agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1974 to 2004. She was not allowed to write about her experiences until she retired, but in 1994, she appeared on A&E to discuss the operation. Learn more at www.ahuntforjustice.com
