Críticas:

"With power and humor, rage and sorrow, the narrative details the demise of the Lord God bird, braiding into its tale the stories of those who came into contact with it, from J.J. Audubon himself to James Tanner...Sidebars add engrossing details, and extensive back matter bespeaks exemplary nonfiction. But it's the author's passion that compels. Outstanding in every way." --Starred, Kirkus Reviews

"In a thoroughly researched account based on interviews, primary materials, and published sources, Hoose tells how naturalists...raised, too late, awareness of the Ivory-bill's plight. Illustrated with archival photos and well provided with side bars, "important dates," maps, glossary, and index, this important summary of an environmental tragedy belongs in every library." --The Horn Book

"This meticulously researched labor of love uses drama, suspense, and mystery to tell the story of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker...Hoose skillfully introduces each individual involved through interesting, historically accurate scenes. The author's passion for his subject and high standards for excellence result in readable, compelling nonfiction." --Starred, School Library Journal

"The combination of the best of storytelling supported by extensive research...a must for any library serving youth or teachers." --VOYA

"A compelling tale...readers will sense the urgency that remains, even if the Ivory-bill is gone." --Publishers Weekly

"Hoose is a gifted storyteller. An engrossing story." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Fascinating, engrossing." --Book Links
