"I HATE WIRE !" So said Charlie Schroeder, and the result was a zoo revolution. Stroll through any modern zoo and marvel at the wonder of seeing a tiger, a rhino or perhaps a gorilla with seemingly nothing but air between you and the wild animal, and you'll be feeling the incredible, personal impact of Dr. Charles Schroeder's vision. Veterinarian, scientist, visionary, leader, political genius, taskmaster, mentor, con man, rascal, P.T. Barnum in a suit and tie - Charlie Schroeder was all these things as the World-Famous San Diego Zoo's legendary director. With his 1,000-watt smile and his talent for making good ideas come to life, he touched millions in his lifetime while becoming beloved as "Mister Zoo" to the zoological world. Charlie Schroeder led an amazing life, a true All-American saga. Mister Zoo is a funny, inspiring, surprising biography of a man who made a difference.

From the Publisher:

Mister Zoo highlights the life and career of this energetic and far-sighted man. Beginning with some of Charles Schroeder's boyhood experiences, the book chronicles his veterinary studies, his work as a San Diego Zoo veterinarian, and his Zoo directorship through stories, anecdotes, and reminiscences from those who know him best. A great opportunity to learn some of the early history of the World-Famous San Diego Zoo and San Diego Wild Animal Park, and to get to know a Zoo legend.

About the Author:

Douglas G. Myers has been the executive director of the World- Famous San Diego Zoo, building on Charlie's legacy, since 1985. He came to the Zoological Society of San Diego in 1982 as general manager of the San Diego Wild Animal Park, where, due to Charlie's famous weekly Park visits after retirement, he became Dr. Schroeder's friend and colleague. Lynda Rutledge Stephenson, writer, author, and freelance journalist, has collaborated on over a dozen books as well as written for publications such as the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, and Houston Post.
