From the Publisher
"The prose is exceptionally well crafted, always including interesting facts or stories about the departed species."
"Extinct Animals is a remarkable and highly recommended work of scholarship that is fully accessible to the non-specialist general reader, as well as academia."
Midwest Book Review - MBR Bookwatch
". . . the prose is clear and even lively at times ('Fortunately for the pronghorn antelope, the American cheetah died out around 10,000 years ago'). The level of detail makes this a more rewarding resource for serious students of extinction's causes–which are many and often hard to pin down–than Don Lessem's Dinosaurs to Dodos: An Encyclopedia of Extinct Animals (Scholastic, 1999)."
School Library Journal
"These 65 species are fascinating, evocative, and important to know about as representative of the history of the earth. The information is interesting and well documented, and the author writes clearly and intelligently."
"This book is recommended for public and college libraries and high schools where there is a strong interest in extinct species."
Catholic Library World
"Anyone with an interest in zoology or general users interested in animals of the past will enjoy this book; a good addition for public libraries."
