About this book

During the 1980's the condor population in America was down to only twenty-two individuals. A team of scientists pursued an unconventional and controversial means to save it. This work takes a look at the passion and courage of these scientists, and the controversy surrounding their exceptional plans to save one of the world's majestic creatures.
