About this book

Like the canaries used by miners to mirror their underground health hazards, so we can today on a global scale check the skies to see the drastic decline in songbirds. By using this as his metaphor, and by sifting evidence from past and present, the author puts forward a provocative new theory of extinction in an attempt to unravel the ultimate conundrum of Man's relationship with Nature: Are we part of it or are we somehow distinct?
