This outstanding book tells the frustrating, persistent and hopefully optimistic attempts by the USFWS and the Peregrine Fund to avoid extinction of the California condor. It begins with the early history of the program, the difficult decisions that had and have to be made, and the continuing battle of wildlife biologists against the man-made obstacles that continue to threaten these magnificent scavengers. Although laced with a bit of scientific information, it is readily readable by anyone with the slightest interest in ecology at odds with human devastation of the natural world. It is, admittedly, a niche book, but it should be required reading for anyone interested in the potential demise of this species.
