Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 091033501X, Paperback)

In America there was once a gem in The Great Forest; a winged jewel rivalling any in the tropics. It was the Carolina Parakeet, North America's only native parrot. Curiously, within the span of a century, the great flocks dwindled to nothing, and this thing of beauty disappeared. This is the sobering story of how a young nation loved, laid waste and lost its only parrot.
