Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Passenger Pigeon

At one time the wild pigeons covered the entire north from the Gaspe Peninsula to the Red River Of the North. Separate nestings and ¿ights were Of regular yearly occurrence over this vast eastern and northern expanse. Gradually civilization, molestation and war fare drove them from the Atlantic seaboard west, until Michigan was their last grand rendezvous, in which region their mighty hosts congregated for the final grand nesting in 1878. As late as 184 5 they were quite numerous on the Gaspe Peninsula Of Quebec, but dis appeared from there about that time.

The habits Of the birds were such that they could not thrive singly nor in small bodies, but were dependent upon one another, and vast communities were necessary to their very existence, while an enormous quantity of food was necessary for their sustenance. The cutting Off Of the forests and food supply interfered with their plan of existence and drove them into new localities.
