Publisher Comments:

An Osprey soars across the Kansas sky. A Turkey Vulture slides lazily on the wind. But gone forever are the bright green Carolina Parakeets and five other magnificent birds, including the Labrador Duck and the famous Passenger Pigeon. Christopher Cokinos, award-winning writer, was driven to find out why.

Undertaking ten years of extraordinary detective work, Cokinos, former head of the Kansas Audubon Council, uncovered the strange stories and glorious quests of those who stalked the birds as well as those who fought to save them. And he followed, deep into the Louisiana bayous, tantalizing recent reports that one vanished species had survived against the odds. Here, presented with luminous intensity, is the spirit of these exquisite creaturesùand a call for us to save today's endangered wildlife and the unparalleled beauty of America's land.

With black-and-white photos throughout.

Robert Schindler, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Robert Schindler)
This book offers fascinating insights into species that have vanished from the North American continent since the arrival of Europeans. Though humans might not have been directly responsible for their disappearance, the author makes it clear that we are also not without fault.
