Tells of the tragic waste of our wildlife resources in the past; of many rare species saved on the verge of extinction; of magnificient work done by dedicated men in restoring misused land to its original splendor, tempting animals and birds to return to areas they had abandoned. Presents fascinating details of the regular paths, or flyways, along which thousands of birds migrate each year. Here too is a vivid depiction of the wondrous diversity of birds and animals that inhabit our sanctuaries: the rare whooping crane and Everglade kite, the American bison, pronghorn, sea otter, and loggerhead turtle. Includes an Index.
