A message about A Message from Martha

Dear Mark

Apologies for the sudden email from a random stranger.

However, unknown for me, I felt compelled to contact to congratulate and thank you your excellent book on the extinction the Passenger Pigeon which I’ve just finished. As a lover of the natural world ( and fascinated by extinct birds) I wouldn’t say it was an uplifting read on a Sunday morning, but highly interesting, if appallingly sad!

I shall pass it around among ‘ non birding’ friends with hope of spreading the message of what we are doing to this world a little farther.
