Description

Since the total vanishing of the species, the Great Auk has become an icon of extinction alongside the dodo, the passenger pigeon and the moa. More than any other extinct bird, the Great Auk has been prized as a trophy, and all its attributes, from its eggs to the oral history of its demise, have been voraciously collected until fairly recently. This book recounts the tale of destruction and reminds us what we, as a species, have done and are still doing to the world around us.
