About the Author

He went to school. He went to war. He went to jail. He made love. He made money. He made speeches. He fought in the ring. He fought out of the ring. He saved a life. He broke a horse. He rode a bull. He was throwed and stomped. He drank. He smoked. He gambled.

A great book! Author does not excuse perpetrators nor does he pander to police. As exciting as was the lions escape and slaughter, more exciting was the coverup and the trial. A must read!

By A Customer on May 23, 2002
Format: Paperback
The author may be asking you to decide, but does not come close to providing the reader with a balanced portrayal upon which to base their own opinions. A mish-mash of interviews presented verbatim, trial transcripts, political vitriol and armchair lawyering, the book relates a fascinating event in a thoroughly biased manner.
The escape and shooting of a number of lions from Ligertown, a ramshackle would-be zoo near Lava Hot Springs, Idaho, tore apart a town as people took sides, and spawned any number of conspiracy theories. The author definitely chose to side with Ligertown's owners and presents it glaringly in print. Those readers who agree with the author will have an easy time reading this book. For the rest of us - if we're determined enough to read past the author's partisan prose - we may be able to find the story of Ligertown's demise an intriguing real-life tale.

I enjoyed reading the book, it filled me in on what was going on in the lives of Bob and Dottie that they didn't tell me. It's nice knowing where they finally ended up after leaving Idaho.

I was "friends" with these folks years. They used to come by my house every week to pick up rabbit remains (I had a good sized rabbitry). They used to purchase livestock from me and when I say purchase I mean put on their tab.

Format: Paperback
Brave beyond belief. 25 majestic African lions murdered as they try to return to their cages. A story blurred with distortion until McDevitt reveals the truth of what really happens. "Outragious!" cried the national media.
