In 1968, Adam Smith took a summer job at the zoo as a tour train driver. He lived in the margin between the publics experience and what to him seemed the alien world of full-time keepers and staff. In that gap, adolescent hijinks crept into the routine of the part-time summer employees who were out-of-control and often flying beneath the radar of management.After graduating from college and spending a few years in the corporate world, he returned to the zoo for his health.

Now older, and somewhat wiser, he spent some time as a tour driver before trading hats for that of a night watchman. He had changed- the zoo had changed, and his adventures in the zoo continued.After several years, he traded his nights for a day job as a keeper in the Pachyderm Building. There he cared for hippos, elephants, and, of course, giraffes.This book contains three-stories-in-one and follows his lifes adventures dealing with danger and manure. Moreover, it is his recollection of the men and women he worked with during these years.

It is a memoir of a life lived during a particular time in history when change ruled the day.
