Review of Paper Tiger:
“This book is a remarkable achievement. Freeman tells the story of the thylacine is an original and deeply affecting way. We learn about the animals . . . and the ravaging impact that human ideas had upon them. Freeman writes thoughtfully, carefully, and with force, and the book is a very good read.”
