Gone: A search for what remains of the world's extinct creatures (Hardback)

£18.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Gone is not a scientific book about the genetics and physiology of extinct animals-it is a life affirming, quirky and informative read that everyone will enjoy. Discover, what made 11 extinct species unique; what their habits and habitats were; who discovered (or killed) them; what remains of them; and where we can view what survives of them today.



With evocative illustrations and anecdotal insights from a dynamic nature expert, this book not only resurrects the animals of yesterday, but hints at the consequences that our actions today will have on the species of tomorrow. In doing so, Gone inspires the hope and a respect for the natural world that is needed for it to survive.
