Summary "In Deerland, Al Cambronne ventures with botanists, ecologists, frustrated farmers and foresters, overworked body-shop owners, camoclad hunters, and humble deer enthusiasts. Along the way he gives readers an insider's tour of America's deer-industrial complex--and makes a convincing case that yes, there really is such a thing. Cambronne examines our history with whitetails, pinpoints where our ecological problems began, and asks tough questions about what it will take to restore the balance we've disrupted."--P. [4] of cover.
