Summary
When Don Mitchell was approached by a biologist about tracking endangered Indiana bats on his 150-acre Vermont farm, Mitchell's relationship with bats, and with government, could be characterized as distrustful, at best. Nevertheless, he made a series of "improvements" to his land that would provide a more welcoming habitat for the bats, and a modest tax break for himself and his family. Whether pulling invasive garlic mustard or leaving just enough honeysuckle to give government inspectors "something to find," Mitchell's tale is as profound as it is funny
