Review quote

ADVANCE PRAISE "This is a very personal, affecting account of one man's endeavor to come to grips with the fact that humans in the twentieth century are causing extinctions at an unprecedented rate." -- Publishers Weekly "Beautifully composed natural history ... simply superb." -- Kirkus "Despite its litany of stark truths, Wild Echoes is anything but an oppressive book. Bergman's prose is rich and lively, his search becomes a shared adventure, his affection for 'broken creatures' rings clear, and his perspective elevates hope above desperation." -- Orionshow more
