An interestingly written highly readable account of the California Condor s near extinction and the fight to recover the condor s population Although the author s occasional political stabs are mildly irritating he does an excellent job of respectfully presenting opposing viewpoints on the condor recovery program

Summary Condor To the Brink and Back The Life and Times of One Giant Bird Condor To the Brink and Back The Life and Times of One Giant Bird Read & download ✓ 100 John Nielsen ↠ 0 Free download The California condor has been described as a bird with one wing in the graveFlying on wings nearly ten feet wide from tip to tip these birds thrived on the carcasses of animals like woolly mammoths Then as humans began dramatically reshaping North America the continent's largest flying land bird started disappearing By the beginning of the twentieth century extinction seemed inevitableBut small groups of passionate individuals refused to allow the condor to fade away even as they fought over how and why the bird was to be saved Scientists farmer. The information on the natural history of the condor was interesting and the reason I wanted to read this book However much of it is about the history of California and the various people that have played a role in either preserving or decimating the condor populationI thought this would be an uplifting book about condors coming back from the brink of extinction but I found it extremely depressing Let s just say the history of California is a trail of destruction death and the raping of nature forged by cruel and seedy characters who landed in the garden of Eden and crapped in it
