The lost and left behind: stories from the age of extinctions.

The lost and left behind: stories from the age of extinctions. Terry Glavin.

London: Saqi Books, 2007. Octavo, black and white illustrations, fine copy in dustwrapper.

The world is losing more than animal and plant species. We are also losing the vast human legacy of languages, and with it ways of living, seeing and knowing. The author explores the history of extinctions and tells the story of a long human struggle to conserve the living things of the world. Terry Glavin sets off in pursuit of endangered species, and finds hope in the most unlikely places: a macaw roost in Costa Rica; a relic community of Norse whalers; a vault beneath the Royal Botanical Garden at Kew.
