What’s new as of October 2020:


The Tourist Trail is at once a romance, an adventure story, an environmental polemic, and a keen study of just how animalistic humans are.”—Phoebe Literary Journal

“Throughout the book, the passions and sincerity of animal advocates are captured with immense respect…the story becomes unstoppable.” — Animal Legal Defense Fund

(5 stars) “The Tourist Trail” will challenge your perceptions of villains and innocent victims, and make you question whose side you’re on as each character grapples with his or her own authenticity, with what’s worth fighting for, and faces the realization that no matter how fast you run, you can never escape from yourself. —  IndieReader

The Tourist Trail by John Yunker is an exciting, thoughtful, intelligent and extremely well-written ecothriller. This novel continually surprised me and kept challenging me at every turn.” — The Literary Lioness
