    Until the end of the last Ice Age, large mammals such as mastodons and woolly mammoths lived alongside humans. Levy investigates the evidence which provides clues about the demise of these megafauna, and concludes that human action was to blame. She argues that the extinctions in the Pleistocene can teach us important lessons about the best modern approach to the conservation of the large wild animals that play such a key role in the ecosystem.
