COPIES ARE SHELFWORN
Richly illustrated with photographs by award-winning nature photographer Noppadol Paothong, and accompanied by the text of accomplished natural history writer Kathy Love, this book tells the story of the sage-grouse, its habitat in the vast Sagebrush Sea of the Intermountain West, and the threats faced by both. Although the sage-grouse once flourished in many Western US states and provinces of Canada, in the past century its populations have diminished drastically. Today, fewer than 400,000 sage-grouse remain, and conservative legislation challenging the preservation of public wild lands increasingly threatens the sage- grouse. This book is designed not only to build awareness on the issues threatening the sage-grouse, but to stimulate and inspire readers to join the fight for environmental conservation and wilderness preservation. Bird lovers, nature enthusiasts, and residents of the American West will delight in viewing the beauty of the sage-grouse and emerge with a deeper sense of the many interests affecting the sagebrush ecosystem and the conservation efforts being implemented. This book is one of the most visually stunning and comprehensive documentations of one of the most iconic species of the United States, great for Bird lovers, nature enthusiasts, students, and residents of the American West.
