Reviews
Quammen's ability to turn science into high drama is unmatched.
Erudite, witty, and utterly fascinating...sets a new standard in nature writing.--T. C. Boyle
He sees both sides of the equation, which environmentalists still tend to frame in terms of good animals versus evil people....Insatiably curious, level-headed, and amazingly erudite.
Quammen, one of those extraordinary writers who can wring all the blood-wet drama out of science without ever resorting to mysticism or melodrama, here tracks man-eaters through history and legend, then deep into their present domains.
