    Thumbs up Zoo Story: Life in the Garden of Captives

    Zoo Story: Life in the Garden of Captives
    by Thomas French




    Hyp-ion | 2010 | ISBN: 1401323464 | 304 pages | epub | 1,2 MB


    From Bookmarks Magazine
    French knows the Lowry Park Zoo story better than anyone else, and his writing on the subject is engaging and instructive, particularly when he describes the behind-the-scenes politics that determines what 175 million Americans see every year on their visits. French adroitly mixes the sordid details of Lowry Park with a "big-picture" approach, avoiding the finger-pointing and polemic that so often accompanies discussions of zoos. The most difficult thing about reading Zoo Story is coming to terms with some hard truths about wildlife conservation--for example, are possible solutions worse than the problem? "All zoos, even the most enlightened," French points out, "are built upon an idea both beguiling and repellent--the notion that we seek out the wildness of the world and behold its beauty, but that we must first contain that wildness."
