Non-Fiction

Exciting and engrossing real life story of the pursuit of Yoshi Kojima, the kingpin of butterfly smugglers, by a determined U.S. Fish & Wildlife expert.

Kojima's expertise in the illegal butterfly trade and his craftiness in eluding detection and capture is breathtakingly engrossing. I couldn't put this book down!

Like the non-fiction books, The Big Year (bird watching), The Orchid Thief, Word Freak (competitive Scrabble players) or Candy Freak, I absolutely love these true life stories exploring the sub-cultures of people and their extreme pursuits.
