No Turning Back: The Life and Death of Animal Species
Richard Ellis (au) (il)
Nearly every species that has lived on earth is extinct. The last of the dinosaurs was wiped out after a meteorite slammed into the earth 65 million years ago. The great flying & marine reptiles are no more. Before humans crossed into N. America 15,000 years ago, it was populated by mastodons, mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, & cave bears. They are gone. The passenger pigeon, once the most numerous bird in North America, is gone forever. Here, Ellis explores the life & death of animal species, immortalizing creatures that were driven to extinction thousands of years ago & those more recently. He documents those that were brought back from the brink, & he reveals animals not known to exist until the 20th century -- an antidote to extinction. Illustrations.
