Synopsis

Last of the Curlews by Fred Bodsworth, W S Merwin

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.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
