“Can people and endangered species live together?” San Bruno Mountain, site of the nation’s first Habitat Conservation Plan, provides a context to explore this complex question. Told with humor and insight, Butterflies & Bulldozers is about the rights of nature and the rights of people, about compromise, commitment, and the tough choices we all have to make. San Bruno Mountain is the last intact fragment of wild San Francisco. The fifty-year fight to save the mountain is a story of national and global significance.”
