Description
 
The ivory-billed woodpecker has long been the holy grail of birders -- the one sighting of which every birder dreams. This is both a complete natural history of the most exciting and rare -- perhaps even extinct -- birds in the world and a fascinating personal quest by the world’s leading expert on the species. Jackson provides detailed insights into the bird’s lifestyle, habitat, and cultural significance, examining its iconic status from the late 1800s to the present in advertising, conservation, and lore. He relates searches for the bird by John James Audubon, Alexander Wilson, and others. “A mix of natural history, memoir, and field book, Jackson’s is a story of great hope and dedication to one of North America’s most magnificent and elusive birds.” Illus.
