Okay, how can you not love an alternate history story set in 1890s America featuring an outlaw and his hippo? In fact, lots of hippos? It’s taken me too long to get onto this novella by Sarah Gailey, but I’m finally jumping on this bandwagon!
•••
In the early 20th century, the US Government concocted a plan to import hippos into the marshlands of Louisiana as an alternate meat source. Well, things didn’t go well and now the bayou is infested with savage feral hippos and mercenary hippo wranglers(!!). Now Winslow Houndstooth has been tasked with ridding the waterways of the hippos, and to do that he has to gather a crew of outlaws and assassins for one explosive plan.

Say Hi to Rosa!

"It's not a caper; it's an operation." —River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey ⭐⭐⭐

My Saturday night date. I'm telling Leo all about the feral #hippos in @gaileyfrey Sarah Gailey' s knockout of a #nebula nominated #novella River of Teeth. He is utterly nonplussed. What a brave yet foolhardy kitten.

"It's not a caper," Houndstooth replied, sounding irritated. "It's an operation."

How do you negotiate with a stubborn hippo? Find out in "Worth Her Weight in Gold" by @gaileyfrey! Link in our bio!

I just found out I’m getting a copy of American Hippo sent to me soon, I’m so excited! American Hippo is the omnibus of River of Teeth and Taste of Marrow, the alternative history novellas about if hippos had in fact been introduced to the Louisiana bayou in the 1800s as suggested by the US government. Anyway, I’m super stoked to finish reading the series and to get an extra short story thrown in the mix!

#libraryhaul :D Exams are over, time for reading! So excited about #riverofteeth it looks amazing!

I know I just finished a book yesterday but #riverofteeth was so quick and so fun I couldn't put it down! It was an excellent interlude to my standard dystopian fare.

In an alternative history of the US, where hippos are farmed for meat, the Mississippi has been dammed and the resulting lake has been filled with trapped feral hippos 'protecting' the casino riverboats from cheats. When a rag-tag group of Hoppers (hippo ranchers) win a government contract to free the feral hippos and restore trade to the region, things don't quite go as planned.

River of Teeth was a fun romp through the bayou with a great cast of characters not usually seen in novels. It's short-form nature didn't lend itself to much complexity or character development, but the story kept my attention and had a few twists up it's sleeve.

I trusted a @powellsbooks staff pick and lo, today it is nominated for a 2018 Best Novella Hugo Award!

I stumbled upon this book at the library the other day, and I was too intrigued to leave it there. The description on the back is perfection. Who wouldn’t want to read an alternate history about wild Louisiana hippos and the men who wrangle them?

You didn’t know you needed a story about American hippo cowboys, con artists and scoundrels on the Mississippi until you’ve read #RiverOfTeeth by #SarahGailey #alternatehistory #historicalfiction #justread #bookstagram #bibliophile #booklover

An alternate history where hippos live in Louisiana bayous and our heroes ride them into battle?! Drop everything and read Sarah Gailey’s preposterously fun novella. It’s got everything-hippos, heists, true love, etc. etc. And you can knock the whole book out in a night. But you’ll wish it was longer 📖😂💙 #goodreads #currentlyreading #instalike #instadaily #instagood #instalove #instafollow #instanature #hiking #hikingadventures #instabook #instaread #igbooks #igreads #bookstagram #blog #blogger #bookish #booknerd #bookworm #booklove #booklover #riverofteeth #louisiana #sarahgailey #alternatehistory #reading #bookaddict
