What did you like best about this story?
It provided a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Santa Fe Trail and the animal inhabitants.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was deeply touched by the suffering of the animals at the hands of mankind. I wish we had moved on from these days, but sadly humans don't seem to learn.
Any additional comments?
Being from the UK I had little knowledge of this area of the US and only a cursory knowledge of many of the animals mentioned. There is a wealth of information and I shall certainly be listening to the book again, and recommending it to others that have an interest in the wildlife of the US.

A far better read than most "publish or perish" or doctoral theses. Apparently researched in depth using memoirs of eyewitnesses of the time, a clear picture of what we have destroyed and lost in the animal kingdom of the US is presented with clarity. Specific animals are targeted in this piece, and the "before" is well demonstrated with much for the reader to learn, and the how and why of the depopulation with or without the need of relocation of each is equally depicted.
This is an excellent study piece for the ecologically minded, whether as required reading or personal enrichment. I found it to be a page-turner for me, and I learned a great deal that I did not realize I wanted to know.
Sally Martin gives this lecture a remarkably pleasant experience in the audiobook format.

This book was a perfect companion to our road trip through the central prairie. We learned not only about the vastness of the native animals at the time of the Santa Fe trail, but also about the lives of those who witnessed this then prestine setting.
