  1. Ha, I like that final assessment of your review: “Class what have we learned?” If you’re looking for a fun exploration book, a new one set in the 1890s called River of Teeth just came on my radar. Check this out:

    “In the early 20th Century, the United States government concocted a plan to import hippopotamuses into the marshlands of Louisiana to be bred and slaughtered as an alternative meat source. This is true.

    Other true things about hippos: they are savage, they are fast, and their jaws can snap a man in two.

    This was a terrible plan.”
