about this item

In the fate of the North American passenger pigeon we can read much of the story of wild America the astonishment that accompanied its discovery, the allure of its natural productions, the ruthless exploitation of its commodities, and the ultimate betrayal of its peculiar genius. And in the bird’s fate can be read the essential vulnerability of species and the unpredictable passage of life itself. A morality tale for our times, this is a compelling and deeply researched chronicle of the last years of the passenger pigeon and the dawn of the New World.
