Condors in Canyon Country: The Return of the California Condor to the Grand Canyon Region

Condors in Canyon Country: The Return of the California Condor to the Grand Canyon Region Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten thousand years ago, the California condors shadow raced across the rock faces of canyon walls throughout the Southwest, but, over time, the majestic condor disappeared from this land—seemingly forever. Last seen in northern Arizona in 1924, the California condor was on the brink of extinction. In the early 1980s, scientists documented only twenty-two condors remaining in the wild, all in California. Thanks to a successful captive-breeding program, their numbers have increased dramatically, and dozens now fly free over northern Arizona and southern Utah.

Sophie A. H. Osborns groundbreaking book, Condors in Canyon Country, tells the tragic but ultimately triumphant story of the condors of the Grand Canyon region. A natural storyteller, Osborn has written an in-depth, highly personal narrative that brings you along as the author and other condor biologists struggle to ensure the survival of the species. The books kaleidoscopic photographs of these huge birds flying free over the Southwest are nearly as breathtaking as seeing California condors live. The only book of its kind, Condors in Canyon Country is a must-read for anyone passionate about endangered species and what humankind can do to save them.
