Editorial Reviews

Review

“An entertaining jaunt through city wildlife.” —Kirkus Reviews

"Feral Cities relates one fun and interesting story after another about how animals are adapting to city life. There are plenty of surprises here, even for veteran city dwellers. We are not alone!" —Julie Feinstein, author of Field Guide to Urban Wildlife

 



“Donovan not only shows readers how territorial boundaries between humans and wild animals constantly shift, but also how such encounters with birds, coyotes, and snakes should come as no great surprise.” —Publishers Weekly


“Surprising, entertaining, sometimes frightening, Donovan's worldwide exploration of urban wildlife will be enjoyed by all types of readers including young adults, animal lovers, and those interested in ecology.” —Library Journal


“In Feral Cities, journalist Tristan Donovan explores the conflict zone of cities and wild animals, and he seems to have a good time doing it.” —Science News


“Donovan entertainingly exposes ecological experiments gone hopelessly awry and offers thoughtful input on how such tipping points can be avoided in the future.” —Booklist


“Even those of us who have intensely studied urban wildlife for decades can learn a bit from some of Donovan’s many sources, and Donovan can be praised for drawing out nuggets of information and perspective from sources who by reputation tend to be reticent.” —Animals 24-7


This interdisciplinary understanding of the issue is certainly apparent in the excellent Feral Cities. Although not an analytical, scientific text, the book provides a unique look into the lives of both urban wildlife and its human counterpart. For anyone interested in any of the many aspects of urban wildlife, Feral Cities will be a vastly entertaining read.” —The Nature of Cities


"Wild creatures are having a people problem these days, and Donovan takes us on a global frolic to find all sorts of untamed critters and de-natured people cohabiting badly." —Jim Sterba, author of Nature Wars and Frankie's Place 

About the Author

Tristan Donovan is the author of two widely praised books, Replay: The History of Video Games and Fizz: How Soda Shook Up the World. His journalism has appeared in many major newspapers, magazines, and websites. He has a degree in ecology.
