"As illuminating as it is shocking, Where the Wild Things Were offers a provocative now look at the world's top predators, and the cascades of unforeseen consequences triggered by their disappearance. It visits as well their few tenuous recoveries, lighting some of conservation's brightest beacons of hope." "In the end this is a story of life ironically enriched by the jaws of death. For anyone who has seldom given thought to the great predators so rapidly fading from the web of life, here is a world of reason to think again."--BOOK JACKET.Stolzenburg, William is the author of 'Where the Wild Things Were: Life, Death, and Ecological Wreckage in a Land of Vanishing Predators', published 2008 under ISBN 9781596912991 and ISBN 1596912995.
