Comprehensive and disturbing work on the decreasing numbers of tropical migrant species in North American forests, and a warning that if action is not taken now, there may be no way back. The author discusses the six months the birds spend in the tropics, the effects of deforestation, and American policy on urban and suburban development.
This is a splendid book, simultaneously fascinating and frightening... For the birds' sake, read this book! Naturalist Review, Audubon Naturalist Society
