Summary
  • They create rain forests in the middle of the American prairie. They build a Hippoquarium with fifty-five-foot windows. And sometimes - but only for education's sake - they even let you touch the animals. The designers and directors of America's most advanced zoological gardens are at the forefront of dramatic shifts in the form and the function of the modern zoo. Keepers of the Kingdom is the culmination of photographer Michael Nichols' two-year odyssey to document
  • These sweeping changes. The result is a groundbreaking work, a tour of the most innovative American zoos
