This journal about traveling with bird-destruction teams in Turkey is honest, informative and full of voice.

This is an intimate sharing of a difficult journey. The author uses first person not to grandstand, but to communicate knowingly, American to American, about cultural assumptions around cleanliness and lawfulness and comprehension of risk. Repeated violations of such standards demonstrate why the local Turkish effort to slaughter birds in an avian-flu area can’t quite succeed. Caution: may contain gallows humor.
