Kylie's Ark: The Making of a Veterinarian
Rita Welty Bourke, author
Kylie Wheeler's route to a career in veterinary medicine begins with a job with the National Park Service protecting endangered species of shore birds on a New Jersey coast. From there, she travels to the Bitterroot Mountains in Montana to study the feasibility of re-introducing the lynx to the area. Discouraged and alienated by both experiences, she finds her way to vet school, and finally, out into practice.
