J. Patrick Lewis (au); Christopher Wormell (il). These creatures came in an array of shapes, sizes, & colors. They swam in the seas, soared across the skies, & trotted on the plains. But they crossed paths with man. And now they are gone. Poems by J. Patrick Lewis, paired with engravings by Chris Wormell, here form the epitaphs for 20 extinct animals. From the Dodo, 3 centuries dead, to the Miss Waldron’s Red Colobus, vanished just a few years ago, this book is a tribute to creatures who recently shared the Earth with us -- & an expression of hope that they will not be forgotten. It takes its name from the trumpeter swan shown on the cover, a huge bird whose population was reduced to fewer than 100 birds, but was pulled back from the brink of extinction. “A lovely book.”
