Battle at the End of Eden
By Amanda Rose Martinez | The Atlantic Books, 2012
A globe-trotting tale that marks the very first time original Atlantic reporting is being published as an ebook, Battle at the End of Eden takes readers inside the fight to preserve the most delicate places on Earth. All across the globe, on exotic islands far from view, the world's rarest animals are quietly dying off. To many, the vexing wave of extinction portends an ecological crisis. To a cadre of brash scientists who think they've discovered a solution, these desperate times call for desperate measures—a strategy involving guns, poison, traps, and a wholesale rethinking of modern conservation.
