I really liked how Baron explored the area's history -- I love history, for a start, but there were so many small factors that added up to forming this problem. The book got under my skin in a weird way. It is, ultimately, a book about the future of our nation, where suburban sprawl and wildlife-protection laws are pushing people and wild animals into uncomfortable, sometimes deadly proximity.

Wildlife management must deal with this fact to protect citizens, especially the Disney crowd. I think it's a normal reaction for those of us who were raised and now live in developed areas -- we've lost sight of the fact that animals, particularly wild ones, can be dangerous.

Although the author is a good writer, and the book is an interesting read, I've rated it only two stars b I read this book several years ago and liked it.
