And Then There Was One: The Mysteries of Extinction (Sierra Club Series)by Margery Facklam, Sierra Club Books, Pamela Johnson
This book examines the many reasons why animals disappear from the face of the earth--from natural causes such as earthquakes, floods, and overspecialization, to human causes such as overhunting, habitat destruction, and pollution. Award-winning science author Margery Facklam also discusses how some near-extinctions have been reversed by people who care, through special breeding programs and legislation to save endangered species. Young readers are sure to be captivated by this unique look at the basics of the evolutionary process, and the wonders of the animal kingdom.
