t is not all gloom and doom in this book about endangered species; in fact, the usual bad news about more creatures on the brink of extinction is tempered by some very positive information.

Goodall, along with her co-authors, shares some fascinating survival stories about the American crocodile, the California condor, the black-footed ferret, and a host of other species from around the world that have been rescued from extinction and whose habitats are being protected and/or restored.
nterweaving her own firsthand experiences with the compelling research of some of the world's premier scientists, Dr. Goodall illuminates the heroic efforts of dedicated environmentalists and the critical need to protect the habitats of these valuable species.
iscussing why it is necessary to continue the fight to save endangered species, Dr. Goodall writes, '
For the sake of our children we must not give up, we must continue to fight to save what is left and restore that which is despoiled. We must support those valiant men and women who are out there doing just that.
y highlighting over thirty
stories in this book, Dr. Goodall shows that the fight is not lost. In fact, creatures on the brink of extinction can be brought back, as the plight of the California condor illustrates.
llustrated with numerous photos, this is a book that anyone interested in wildlife or natural conservation will wish to read. The research work is fascinating and the authors' message is uplifting. It's also really a pleasure to read something positive for a change about the continuing struggle to save endangered species!
