"Misconceptions Make this Book Beastly" - Book Review by
Nathaniel R. Dickinson
The Beast in the Garden, David Baron, W. W. Norton and Company, 2004
- Killings of human beings by cougars in areas near built-up suburbs have led Baron to advocate for action by public agencies and private groups to preserve more open space, rather than identify problems and needs. In addition to accounts of encounters with cougars, Baron's writing includes a hodgepodge ranging from a study of deep-seated fear of cats to discourses on multiculturalism, feminism, environmentalism and Native Americanism. The strict preservationist stance displays a lack of appreciation of the natural world.
