Inhaltsangabe: Every day, a dirty war is being fought against dozens of threatened and endangered wildlife species. In America as well as abroad, the counterinsurgency campaign against the poachers and smugglers is being waged by U.S. Fish and Wildlife undercover agents. Game Wars offers a stunningly written, firsthand account of how these agents operate.
Rezension: If environmentalists ever get around to building a hall of fame, Dave Hall ought to be up for early induction. Hall, the hero of Game Wars, is the Dirty Harry of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service whose goal in life is to stop poachers dead in their tracks and who doesn't mind blowing away a few bad guys to do it. (Mind you, we're not talking about the backwoods denizen who bags a deer off-season now and again, but an organized underground economy that may soon drive the alligator extinct for its skin, the walrus extinct for its ivory.) Marc Reisner's account of Hall's dangerous exploits is as thrilling, and infinitely more satisfying on those rare occasions when the hero wins, than any movie chase scene.
