Synopsis

Last of the Giants by Jeff Campbell

But evolution and the arrival of the wildly adaptive human species have led to extinction for many of these giants. Globalization, beginning with Columbus, has already destroyed the black rhino, the giant tortoise, and the great auk; but for other species, there is still time. Last of the Giants chronicles these giant animals, and provides an astonishing portrait of an ancient world that is vanishing before our very eyes.

Reviews

These timely, important, and fascinating stories will encourage readers to save all life, no matter its size. --Booklist (starred review) [Campbell s] explorations of these annihilated species are complex and perceptive and go beyond the usual worn conclusion of human-wrought woe. . . Required reading for the budding naturalist and a good pairing for a STEM or history curriculum too. --School LIbrary Journal (starred review) Expertly chronicles those giant animals and apex predators who have been pushed to extinction in the modern era. Very highly recommended for school and community library children's books collections Children s Bookwatch The amount of research that went into thisbook is evident. Included are the stories ofthirteen species; some are long extinct, andothers (in a much smaller form) are stillwithus. The chapterson each animal are wellwritten, fullof facts, and engaging. VOYA
