Near fine hardcover in dust jacket. Remainder mark on top edge of text block. Three or four times an hour, eighty or more times a day, a unique species of plant or animal vanishes forever. And yet, every so often one of these lost species resurfaces. 'Having adventures most of us can only dream about' (The Times-Picayune), Scott Weidensaul pursues stories of loss and recovery, of endurance against the odds, and of surprising resurrections.
