  • THE ASTONISHING STORY OF ONE OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST ANIMAL RESCUES.When the Iraq war began, conservationist Lawrence Anthony could think of only one thing: the fate ofthe Baghdad Zoo, caught in the crossfire at the heart of the city. Once Anthony entered Iraq hediscovered that hostilities and uncontrolled looting had devastated the zoo and its animals. Workingwith members of the zoo staff and a few compassionate U.S. soldiers, he defended the zoo, barteredfor food on war-torn streets, and scoured bombed palaces for desperately needed supplies.Babylon's Ark chronicles Anthony's hair-raising efforts to save a pride of Saddam's lions, close adeplorable black-market zoo, run ostriches through shoot-to-kill checkpoints, and rescue the dictator'spersonal herd of Thoroughbred Arabian horses.A tale of the selfless courage and humanity of a few men and women living dangerously for all theright reasons, Babylon's Ark is an inspiring and uplifting true-life adventure of individuals on bothsides working together for the sake of magni?cent wildlife caught in a war zone.
