Pilgrims Of The Air by John Wilson Foster
A story of a scarcely credible abundance, of flocks of birds so vast they made the sky invisible. Also a story, difficult to credit, of a collapse into extinction so startling to the inhabitants of the New World as to provoke a mystery. Publication of this beautifully written and painstakingly researched account coincides with the centenary of the death, on 1st September 1914, of the last known passenger pigeon in Cincinnati Zoo.
The first 100 to order will receive a copy signed by the author.
