Produsentens egen omtale: 
* The first modern retelling of the extinction of the Great Auk
* Based on contemporary eye-witness accounts of the Great Auk spanning four centuries and the wide expanse of the North Atlantic
* Attractively illustrated including maps, photographs, line drawings, and an original colour frontispiece by artist Jan Wilczur
* Draws on material from previously unpublished sources
* The story features some of the greatest Victorian ornithologists and pioneers in conservation

The Great Auk is one of the world's most famous extinct birds. This curious seabird was flightless, stood upright like a human, and sported an enormous beak. In this fascinating book, Jeremy A. Gaskell takes the reader on a tour of some of the wildest and coldest places on earth as he tries to uncover the facts behind its disappearance, and the reasons why attempts to save it were in vain.
