Vanishing by Susan Bonthron

$350.00
This book was inspired by Kim Stanley Robinson's Ministry for the Future, in which he lists animals that are extinct or nearly so. When I researched them, I was moved by their miraculous beauty and heartbroken by their almost certain extinction. When will we humans learn to love and care for the extraordinary garden we inhabit?
