In this conservation classic, originally published fifty-five years ago, Fred Bodsworth tells the story of a solitary Eskimo curlew's perilous migration and search for a mate.
The lone survivor comes to stand for the entirety of a species on the brink of extinction, and for all in nature that is endangered.
This new paperback edition includes a foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet W.S.
Merwin and an afterword by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann.
