Publisher's Summary

In the early 20th 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.

    "Demented fun"

    This was a fun, strange, and engrossing story about a different type of caper. Um, I mean "operation."

    I was almost immediately drawn into the alternate history author Sarah Gailey created in River of Teeth. The characters are well rounded and interesting, even the hippos. If I had to choose a favorite character though, I would choose Archie. I would love to either be her, or have her on my side. Hero is a close second, but each of the crew, even Neville, made me smile at times.

    Peter Berkrot did an excellent job narrating this story.
