Description: Last reliably spotted in 1844 off the lonely Icelandic island of Eldey, the mysterious, flightless Great Auk continues to exert a powerful hold on humankind's imagination -- more than 150 years after the bird became extinct.

This stunning book, with more than 400 beguiling pictures, over half in full color, covers every aspect of the Great Auk's natural history. It catalogues every known specimen and surviving egg; chronicles the bird's frequent appearances in art and literature; and relates delicious scraps of lore, including tales of the many curious characters who became involved in the Great Auk's tragic disappearance. Nature lovers will be enchanted by this astonishingly comprehensive record of a species that is gone forever -- yet surely not forgotten.
