In the early twentieth century, the United States government concocted a plan to import hippopotamuses into the marshlands of Louisiana to be bred and slaughtered as an alternative meat source. This is true. Other true things about hippos: they are savage, they are fast, and their jaws can snap a man in two. This was a terrible plan. Contained within this volume is an 1890s America that might have been: a bayou overrun by feral hippos and mercenary hippo wranglers from around the globe. It is the story of Winslow Houndstooth and his crew. It is the story of their fortunes. It is the story of his revenge.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The narrator Peter Berkrot was a pleasure to listen to For the Love of Words
“Man-eating hippo mayhem is my new favorite mayhem. Gailey’s debut is a gift of violent, unexpected glee, and I can’t wait for more capers with Winslow Houndstooth and Ruby the stealth hippo.” Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author
“Fans of seedy westerns will greatly enjoy this tale of gold-tusked hippos and the miscreants who ride them.” Publishers Weekly
“Wonderfully original.” NPR
“Fun and charming with killer hippos and even better characters.” Kirkus Reviews
“A rollicking adventure …Gailey keeps the action moving throughout…While the notion of hippo ranchers may be what draws readers in initially, it’s the cast of characters that will keep them on board. Gailey has created a crew that is witty and full of heart.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
