Rare; Portraits of America's Endangered Species
A wildlife portfolio with a single, haunting theme - all the birds, beasts, flowers and reptiles are endangered species.
When a few of these photographs first appeared in the National Geographic magazine, they were hailed as an arresting reminder of the hundreds of species teetering on the brink of final extinction. The author and National Geographic present 80 iconic images, representing a lifelong commitment to the natural world and a three year investigation into the Endangered Species Act and the creatures it is supposed to protect.
This publication will give readers a broader understanding of the history and purpose of the Endangered Species Act and offers eloquent proof that a picture really is worth a thousand words as it shows us, one after another, uniquely remarkable and seriously threatened life forms.
