Resource Description
HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS, A Personal Chronicle of Vanished Birds. Cokinos. Although most know of the demise of the passenger pigeon, Carolina parakeet, Labrador duck, ivory-billed woodpecker, heath hen, and great awk, not until the publication of this book did we know the full story. Driven by a desire to understand how and why these extinctions came to be, the author embarked on ten years of extraordinary detective work. This book provides a window into a bygone era of American history, from a time when "women of fashion" adorned their hats with the chopped wings of rare birds, to today's new conservation ethic. This intruiging book shows that change is possible. BIRD-9093, hardcover.
