The Race to Save the Lord God Bird 

The tragedy of extinction is explained through the true story of the legendary bird, the ivory-billed woodpecker, and of those who tried to possess it, paint it, shoot it, sell it, and, in a last-ditch effort, save it. A powerful saga that sweeps through two hundred years of history, it introduces artists like John James Audubon, bird collectors like William Brewster, and finally a new breed of scientist in Cornell’s Arthur A. "Doc" Allen and his young ornithology student, James Tanner, whose quest to save the ivory-bill culminates in one of the first great conservation showdowns in U.S. history, an early round in what is now a worldwide effort to save endangered species. Hope for the ivory-bill had faded in the United States, but was rekindled with a spotting of the bird in Cuba in 1987. Includes photographs documenting the habitat changes that rapidly devoured this bird’s prime habitats.
