Anders Halverson, Author of An Entirely Synthetic Fish, Moderates WILD READ January 13-February 17, 2013

About Anders Halverson:

Anders Halverson is an award-winning writer with a Ph.D. in ecology from Yale University. He wrote this book, An Entirely Synthetic Fish: How Rainbow Trout Beguiled America and Overran the World,  as a research associate at the University of Colorado’s Center of the American West with a grant from the National Science Foundation.

About the Book:

Suppose that more than a century ago, U.S. government officials became concerned democracy itself was at risk because men seemed to be less virile.  Suppose that to reverse this trend they decided to populate streams, rivers, and lakes with “an entirely ‘synthetic’ fish”—quarry with which Americans could rediscover their abilities to capture and kill animals. And suppose that, up to the present, these creatures were still being produced and distributed on a massive scale, sometimes even being trained like gladiators and pumped full of the same supplements as the best human athletes so that they would provide a better fight.

Such is the true story of the rainbow trout. Sometimes vilified for their devastating effects on the native fauna, sometimes glorified as the preeminent sport fish, the rainbow trout is the repository of more than a century of America's often contradictory philosophies about the natural world. Exhaustively researched and grippingly rendered by award-winning journalist, aquatic ecologist, and lifelong fisherman Anders Halverson, this book chronicles the discovery of rainbow trout, their artificial propagation and distribution, and why they are being eradicated in some waters yet are still the most commonly stocked fish in the United States.

"Organic Mulch) (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, NRES-19-97). Owning a regular lawn mower does not mean you have to give up on mulching your yard; you just have to be willing to do some work. Sure, you had your occasional exception that stupidly borrowed from the local loan shark, but most learned to live on less.
