Read full description of the books Extinct:Did you know that 99.9% of all species that have ever existed on Earth are now extinct? This book, based on a major British television series, follows the stories of 6 of these creatures: the mammoth, saber-toothed tiger, Irish elk, dodo, great auk, and Tasmanian tiger. Examining the interplay between evolution and extinction, where factors like disease, adaptability, climate change, and the arrival of man can all spell death, the mysteries behind the disappearance of these unique beasts are laid bare. Illustrated with scores of dramatic photos, Extinct is a compelling account of creatures locked in a battle for survival, of explorers who traveled to the ends of the Earth to discover them, and of the scientists who have pieced together the puzzles of the fossils left behind. Anton Gill is the author of Art Lover: A Biography of Peggy Guggenheim and Journey Back from Hell. Alex West is the producer of the television series.
