    Nature Wars: The Incredible Story of How Wildlife Comebacks Turned Backyards into Battlegrounds Author talk & booksigning with Jim Sterba Although Americans may spend most of their time indoors, we now live in closer proximity to wild animals now than anytime in our history. Journalist Jim Sterba traces our 400-year relationship to wild animals from the 19th-century "era of extermination", to the conservation movement of last century, and up to today, the current age of "sprawl." Sterba argues our well-meaning efforts to protect animals enabled their populations to burgeon out of control, causing billions of dollars in damage, degrading ecosystems, and deepening disputes that have polarized communities. Free and open to the public Free evening event parking in the nearby 52 Oxford Street garage. A 7-8 minute walk through historic Harvard Yard from the Harvard Square redline T stop.
