Voyage of the Turtle
By Carl Safina
"As Carl Safina’s compelling natural history adventure makes clear, the fate of the Leatherback Turtle is in our hands. The only surviving species of its genus, family and suborder, the Leatherback is an evolutionary marvel: a “reptile” that behaves like a warm-blooded dinosaur, an ocean animal able to withstand colder water than most fishes and dive deeper than any whale. The distressing decline of these ancient sea turtles in Pacific waters and their surprising recovery in the Atlantic illuminate the results–both positive and negative–of our interventions and the lessons that can be applied, globally, to restore the oceans and its creatures." - http://carlsafina.org/book/voyage-of-the-turtle/

The National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America will be the essential reference for field identification and the cornerstone of any birder's library."
