In this epic account of an extraordinary life lived during remarkable times, Jay Kirk follows the adventures of legendary explorer and taxidermist, Carl Akeley who revolutionized taxidermy, environmental conservation, and created the famed African Hall at New York's Museum of Natural History. Akeley risked death time and again in the jungles of Africa as he stalked animals for his dioramas and hobnobbed with outsized personalities of the era such as Theodore Roosevelt and P. T. Barnum. Kingdom Under Glass isa "rollicking biography. . . and an epic adventure . . . a beguiling, novelistic portrait of a man and an era straining to hear the call of the wild." - Publisher's Weekly
