About this book

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas French investigates the life and death struggles of animals at Tampa Zoo, exposing the corporate greed that nearly destroyed the zoo and tackling the fundamental contradictions at the heart of why zoos exist and why we are drawn to them. His dramatic story takes readers from the African savannah to the forests of Panama and deep into the inner workings of Tampa's Lowry Park, one of the fastest-growing and most controversial zoos in the US.
