520    A resonant true story of small-town politics and community
       perseverance and of decent people and questionable choices,
       Zoo Nebraska is a timely requiem for a rural America in 
       the throes of extinction. Royal, Nebraska, population 
       eighty-onewhere the church, high school, and post office 
       each stand abandoned, monuments to a Great Plains town 
       that never flourished. But for nearly twenty years, they 
       had a zoo, seven acres that rose from local peculiarity to
       key tourist attraction to devastating tragedy. And it all 
       began with one mans outsize vision. When Dick Haskins 
       plans to assist primatologist Dian Fossey in Rwanda were 
       cut short by her murder, Dicks devotion to primates didnt 
       die with her. He returned to his hometown with Reuben, an 
       adolescent chimp, in the bed of a pickup truck and 
       transformed a trailer home into the Midwest Primate 
       Center. As the tourist trade multiplied, so did the 
       inhabitants of what would become Zoo Nebraska, the 
       unlikeliest boon to Royals economy in generations and, 
       eventually, the source of a power struggle that would lead
       to the tragic implosion of Dick Haskins dream.
