The author starts off with a very good point, as much as we would despair at the lose of a famous piece of art or historical building, we could recreate a copy of these treasures. Natural treasures, once gone, are gone. After the introduction the first thing that hits you is the list. A list of each species talked about in the book, and how many there are approximately; the very first animal, the Alabama Sturgeon with a population of two. Reality hits hard with this number. There are success stories, but one can only think there is no way this species will be around longer. Without the success stories, this would be a very depressing read; and it is encouraging to hear how many people are trying to save these species. Included are some beautiful pictures of some of the animals mentioned.
This book about the rarest living things on the planet will stay with you.
