    An adventure with a message

    God, what a book! I saved this great adventure for vacation and just couldn't put it down. Croke manages to incorporate what are clearly years of research into a breathtaking adventure. Shanghai, the wilds of China near the Tibetan border, the turmoil as war gathered over Asia, incredibly cute baby animals ... it's all there. She's got a compelling heroine in Harkness, too, a self-made woman who learned to put on a brave face and do what was necessary. And she manages to show Harkness's growth, as well, as she sees what her panda success is beginning to do to the species. Her response -- which I won't give away -- brought me to tears, and shows why Croke, a gifted writer and wildlife advocate, chose to tell her story. This is a thrilling book, with a flawed but admirable heroine. A wonderful adventure between the covers!
