Narrator Will Damron channels Ben Goldfarb's enthusiasm for beavers as saviors of the environment. The author tramps around the country interviewing all sorts of "beaver believers"--scientists, biologists, ranchers, engineers, and crafty sorts selling beaver tchotchkes--who are committed to the reintroduction of beavers to try to offset the extensive damage to wetlands, rivers, birds, and fish. Fur trappers, urban planners, and farmers killing beavers for money and progress have levied tremendous damage to the ecosystem. Damron's narration is warm, approachable, and energetic as Goldfarb moves from one fascinating fact to another with affection and wry humor. The next time you see a chewed stump, a warm and optimistic feeling will result. (Just don't let children name a beaver, as you will always end up with a Justin Beaver.)
