It is a story of a unique landscape and its effect on people as well as the impact of human beings on the flora and fauna of a fragile desert environment. The story involves international intrigue and border incidents, conflicts over predators, and visitor and employee experiences in the Lone Star State's «last frontier». Other topics include publicity and fund raising campaigns, land acquisition, and development plans for the park.
