I am a fan of Quammen's books and this one is right in there with the rest. Its full of insight on local and global politics as they relate to conservation attempts for these large predators. If full of natural history and local history. Stories of native peoples interactions with large predators over many generations. And there are always Quammen's quirky comments that make you laugh as you follow the stories. I would recommend this book to any who have conservation interests and can tolerate historical details. Narrator is good, just takes a few chapters to get into his reading tone. I'd listen to this again.

Hated the narration - it made me feel like I was watching some old doco from the 1950s! With that sort of old fashioned, deep masculine, supposedly authoritative tone. No nuance given to a very nuanced piece of work. Too bad Quammen couldn’t have narrated this excellent book...
