    Weaving together natural history, investigative reporting and a rich fund of literary and artistic knowledge, this remarkable book tells the story of ten rare or extinct bird species, from the Carolina parakeet to the great auk. Illustrated with the author's own superb artwork and historic images by Audubon, Edward Lear and others, it explains, in graceful, precise prose, why their decline is a devastating loss not only to the natural world but also to our arts, culture and mythology.
