ARC copy received from Edelweiss and University Press of New England for an completely unbiased review.

Todd McGrain develops an interesting book that goes along with his website (http://www.toddmcgrain.com) and his national tour concerning his work attempting to immortalize the extinct birds of the United States. Todd uses his ability to craft life-like figures and eye for dramatic locations to place his monuments to help spread awareness of extinction by humans and the need to save dwindling species.

Each section of the book includes a specific species that has been long extinct due to human encroachment through physical means or environmental. He uses his art to remind us of what is lost and educate the public on our affects on beautiful wildlife.

The beginning of the book drags on, and much of the information contained relates to the author's childhood development towards artistic expression and sympathy for extinct species. It then explains how McGrain researched how this art could be used to immortalize species so that our children's children would remember those species that are no longer with us.

McGrain develops an interesting book partially about conservation efforts, educational efforts and artistic brilliance that captures the imagination. The development of these monuments and the publication for these art pieces brings to the forefront the extermination of many animal species. An fantastic program that has an amazing message.

Suggested read if you are interested in art, animal conservation and learning about efforts from the common man to educate us on ecological issues.
