""Babylon's Ark" is a compelling story of one dedicated man's efforts to save the abandoned animals of the Baghdad Zoo amidst the chaos, danger and uncertainty of a city under siege during the coalition invasion of 2003. Lawrence Anthony shows his courage and intense devotion to the animal kingdom as he risks his life in an effort to shut down the Baghdad Zoo and rehabilitate it. Anthony's crusade for the animals of the Baghdad Zoo is truly his line in the sand."--Jay Kopelman, author of "From Baghdad, With Love: A Marine, the War, and a Dog Named Lava "
