Argues that modern birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs and represent the most ancient linking group of species on our planet. The final chapters describe how some of the bird descendents are themselves now extinct or face extinction at the hands of human beings. Rowe chronicles the fates of the Dodo, Great Auk and Passenger Pigeon and the plight of the Condor. A useful overview, which now includes a CD-ROM.
