".a book of passion and compassion, an historical perspective, and an invaluable overview of what extinction means." --Roger Caras ABC News "The vision of a virgin America haunts the American mind. It is a consolation; but it is much more a goad. The Endangered Kingdom begins as the one and proceeds as the other. In both it succeeds very well." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Not since Peter Matthiessen's Wildlife in America has there been such a readable, engaging book on the history of American wildlife issues." --BioScience ".an historical perspective and a balanced overview of present-day wildlife conservation . [DiSilvestro] reviews the successes and failures of wildlife conservation and he critically examines the state of wildlife management, endangered species, and nongame programs." --Choice "Every American with an interest in our natural heritage should be moved by The Endangered Kingdom." --Paul R. Ehrlich from the Foreword How well have we done with protecting our beleaguered species? What is the full impact of the Endangered Species Act? Is there a role for game hunters in wildlife management programs? This gracefully written and impassioned book explores these questions as it surveys our history of destruction and protection of the animals that share our lands, seas, and skies.
