Boxes, Rockets, and Pens - the title refers to equipment used in the recovery and relocation of wildlife - presents a detailed history of the efforts to restore several of Tennessee's wild animals from near extinction. Drawing from his own firsthand observations of the state's recent wildlife history and from interviews with wildlife professionals, Doug Markham offers a series of vignettes on key recovery programs. Complementing the narrative are nearly one hundred black-and-white and color photographs, including many by the renowned nature photographer Byron Jorjorian.
