The Authentic Animal: Inside the Odd and Obsessive World of Taxidermy

The Authentic Animal: Inside the Odd and Obsessive World of Taxidermy - Dave Madden Wow. Surprisingly literary, incredibly well-written story of taxidermy. Traces the life of Akeley along with many others, and delves into modern taxidermy rather deeply. Don't read this one if you haven't a strong stomach for viscera, for flesh-eating insects, and above all, for trophy hunting.I don't really know what I expected after picking this up by serendipity in my local library. I only know that I was pleasantly surprised by both the content and the literary quality of this book. Highly recommended.
