&i;Wild Echoes&o; was originally published in 1990; this new edition contains a new introduction and substantial updates on the good news and the bad concerning the current status of the species Bergman discusses. He explores the question of what is lost when a species dies forever, by giving personal accounts of meetings with animals such as the gray wolf, the Florida panther, the California condor and the West Indian Manatee.
ADVANCE PRAISE "This is a very personal, affecting account of one man's endeavor to come to grips with the fact that humans in the twentieth century are causing extinctions at an unprecedented rate." -- Publishers Weekly "Beautifully composed natural history ... simply superb." -- Kirkus "Despite its litany of stark truths, Wild Echoes is anything but an oppressive book. Bergman's prose is rich and lively, his search becomes a shared adventure, his affection for 'broken creatures' rings clear, and his perspective elevates hope above desperation." -- Orion
