Summary

With gripping narrative powerThe Condor's Shadowtraces the ways in which human greed and ignorance have wreaked havoc on our ecological landscape. The heir apparent to Peter Matthiessen's 1959 classicWildlife in AmericaThe Condor's Shadowis a brilliant and compulsively readable study of the state of North American wildlife and what is being done to reverse the damage humans have caused.With equal respect for the smallest feather-mite and the fiercest grizzly the frailest flower and the stateliest redwood David S. Wilcove illustrates--in jargon-free often witty prose--nature's delicate system of checks and balances examining the factors that determine a species' vulnerability and the consequences of losing even the tiniest part of any ecosystem. An examination of both the heart-wrenching failures and stunning successes of our conservation effortsThe Condor's Shadowchronicles the destruction and resilience of our American wilderness and offers an insightful eloquent overview that will appeal to avid conservationists and recreational nature-lovers alike.
