    Interesting to read about the history of a Zoo which I've volunteered at and too imagine how different it once was Bit of an inspiration moving forward in the animal field This uote may be overused in the zoo world but that's because it so clearly defines part of what zoos today are all about 'In the end we will conserve only what we love we will love only what we know and we will know only what we are taught' Baba Diom 279 I hope Montana never gets discovered at least in the sense that states like Colorado and Arizona have 292

    This is a lot of fun You learn how he came about being the lead man for the Columbus Zoo and how much he truly loves animals He turned that zoo into one of the premier zoos in the United States Jack Hanna always had a uniue perspective and way about him and it comes through in the book as well Many wonderful pictures too

    I'm no fan of Jack Hannah and I only read this because I was stuck with nothing else to read The book is just like one of his tv appearances goofy and giving a misleading idea of wildlife If you like him you'll probably like this book
