"When the Iraq war began, conservationist Lawrence Anthony could think of only one thing: the fate of the Baghdad Zoo, caught in the crossfire at the heart of the city. Once Anthony entered Iraq he discovered that the hostilities and uncontrolled looting had devastated the zoo and its animals. Working with members of the zoo staff and a few compassionate U.S. soldiers, he defended the zoo, bartered fro food on war-torn streets, and scoured bombed palaces for desperately needed supplies. Babylon's Ark chronicles Anthony's hair-raising eforts to save a pride of Saddam's lions, close a deplorable black market zoo, run ostriches through shoot-to-kill checkpoints, and rescue the dictator's personal herd of thoroughbred Arabian horses."--P.  of cover.
