Manatee Insanity now available
"Manatee Insanity: Inside the War Over Florida's Most Famous Endangered Species" is now available in bookstores and online.
Daryl Domning of the Smithsonian Institution calls it ""the best available, most factual account of the decades-long struggle to protect the Florida manatee, skillfully told by a veteran journalist who has followed the story closely."
And endangered-species law expert Keith Rizzardi says, ""The Florida legislature gave the manatee its own license plate, and Jimmy Buffet sang poetic lyrics about the iconic creature, but Craig Pittman offers a whole new perspective--the manatee as battleground. With a cast of characters including environmentalists and biologists, developers and boaters, lawyers and lobbyists, politicians and shady citizens, Manatee Insanity is a colorful work of non-fiction."
