About this book

Although a work of fiction, this classic book had a major impact on people's thinking when originally published some forty years ago, being an account of the plight of the Eskimo Curlew. This reissue has been updated and includes a review of the species' present status. This new paperback edition includes a foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet W.S. Merwin and an afterword by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann.
