About this book

Cokinos weaves natural history and personal experience into the dramatic story of the last days of six, now extinct, North American bird species. With a blend of science, history, politics and memoir, Hope Is the Thing with Feathers draws on previously unpublished photographs and original documents to make these long-vanished birds come alive.
