Eye of the Albatross. Visions of Hope and Survival
NY, Henry Holt, (2002). The 2003 John Burroughs Medal winner. A portrait of the albatross, from Darwin, to Melville, to a satellite-tracked bird named Amelia, from whose perspective Safina shows the reader not only the vast extent of her natural environment -- Amelia's round trip for a meal for her chick spans 7000 miles -- but also the fragility of the natural world and the creatures within it. Signed by Safina, with a drawing of two fish. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#033878] $125
