Description - Gone: A search for what remains of the world's extinct creatures by Michael Blencowe
A modern must-read for anyone interested in protecting our earth and its incredible wildlife, Gone tells fascinating stories of 11 extraordinary extinct animals from around the world.
This is a mindful call to conserve what we have now before it is lost forever. Learn what made these species unique; what their habits and habitats were; who discovered (or killed) them; what remains of them; and where we can view what survives of them today. Beautifully illustrated, this is not a scientific book--it is a life affirming, quirky and informative read that everyone will enjoy.
