Praise

“This story-of the ghost species still haunting this continent-is full of power and mystery.”
-Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

“A eulogy, a call to conservation, and a careful history.”
Chicago Tribune

“Cokinos balances the emotional impact of the last days of six species with tales of heroic efforts to save them by a handful of bird-lovers.”
USA Today

“Lovingly persistent detective work brings back flashes of color, bits of song, and curious lore. This book deserves a wide and devoted readership.”
-Sheila Nickerson, author of Disappearance: A Map

“A marvelous book, beautifully written and filled with a poetry of evocative detail.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Eloquent and moving . . . a charming narrative that is both personal and historically meticulous.”

The Boston Globe
