Description


Let your senses soar as the author takes you on an exciting journey into the world of wildlife conservation as seen through the eyes of a wildlife veterinarian. The author's descriptions of the exciting captures, the wildlife, scenery, colorful characters, and the ugly politics of his work are precise, vivid, and extremely entertaining and informative. His account of an African lion waking up while being attended to in the South Luangwa National Park of Zambia, Africa, and being stranded on top of an icy, foggy mountain in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, while working on Dall sheep, gives the reader a sense of the dangers. Go along with him to the mysterious swamps of southern Florida, the grassy savannas of Africa, the fringes of the Gobi desert in Outer Mongolia, and the high deserts of the American west to feel the excitement of the chase and the beauty of the country. Share the author's frustration as he attempts to help solve the mystery into the cause of the specie's impending demise. At times, it's a story of sadness, yet hope for all wild creatures that reside just beyond that wild horizon.
