Bringing Back the Game: Arizona Wildlife Management, 1912-1962
When Arizona became a state in 1912, many wildlife species were in dire straits. Fifty years later, most wildlife species, especially game animals, were abundant beyond the hopes of even the most enthusiastic conservationist. Bringing Back the Game examines wildlife management during those formative years as sportsmen, and later professional game wardens and biologists, worked to return game populations to abundance and to provide more fishing opportunities.
“Dave Brown is a great storyteller. He brings alive the personalities, struggles, and triumphs leading up to Arizona’s modern-day management of wildlife. It is a story worth telling—and Brown does it well. Bringing Back the Game is the place to start if you want to know the history of managing game and fish in Arizona.” ~James P. Collins, Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Natural History and the Environment, School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University
