A comprehensive, beautifully illustrated guide to the Dodo, whose extinction from the shores of Mauritius followed the arrival of sailors in the C16. The first 3 chapters investigate the bird's natural history by means of historical documents and illustrations. 16 contemporary reports described its behaviour, and its anatomy is revealed from bone records. Fuller then examines the cultural legacy of the Dodo and looks at 2 other extinct species, the Solitary Dodo and the White Dodo.
