Read in March, 2012

This book was chosen as a Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fischer nominee this year, which gave me the incentive to read this book I would have likely ignored otherwise. I am not the non-fiction reader that I ought to be, but then I'm always fascinated when I read a non-fiction book and find out so much about the world I never knew. The kakapo falls into that classification. These wonderful parrots are in danger of extinction, but a group of scientists and volunteers are working to prevent that. This book details a visit the author and photographer NIc Bishop take to learn of the Kakapo and write about their experience as they follow the scientists on their journey to save these beautiful, gentle birds.
