Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Sure, poop is disgusting, but it's also packed with potential. This uniquely crafted narrative nonfiction invites readers to follow the author into science labs, forests, hospitals, and landfills as she asks: Who uses poo? One scientist trained a dog to track elephant dung to better understand their birthing patterns. Another discovered that mastodon poop from eons ago is the reason we enjoy pumpkin pie today. And every week, some folks deliver their own poop to medical facilities, where it is swirled, separated, and shipped off to a hospital to be transplanted into another human. There's even a train full of human sludge that's stuck without a home in Alabama."-- Inside front cover.
