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.

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.
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.
