Babylon's Ark is the astonishing story of one of the world's greatest animal rescues.
When the Iraq war began, conservationalist 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 hostilities and uncontrolled looting had devestated the Zoo and it's animals. Working with members of the Zoo staff and a few compassionate US soldiers,he defended the zoo, bartered for food on war torn streets, and scoured bombed palaces for desperatley needed supplies. " Babylon's Ark" chronicals Anthony's hair-raisingefforts to save a pride of Saddam's lion's, close a deplorable black market zoo, run ostrichesthrough shoot-to-kill checkpoints, and rescue the dictator's personal herd of thoroughbred Arabian horses. A tale of selfless courage and humanity of a few men and women living dangerously for all the right reasons. An inspiring and uplifting book.
