“In an era when women were expected to remain at home and had yet to be granted the right to vote or own property, the abolition of the feather trade was ultimately their work.”
Kirk W. Johnson, The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century

“This consideration,” he concluded, “must surely tell us that all living things were not made for man.”
Kirk W. Johnson, The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century

“Little did I know, my pursuit of justice would mean journeying deep into the feather underground, a world of fanatical fly-tiers and plume peddlers, cokeheads and big game hunters, ex-detectives and shady dentists. From the lies and threats, rumors and half-truths, revelations and frustrations, I came to understand something about the devilish relationship between man and nature and his unrelenting desire to lay claim to its beauty, whatever the cost.”
Kirk W. Johnson, The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century
