”人類が知っていることすべての短い歴史”(ビル・ブライソン著)の結びにこの本について紹介されていたので興味がわき、購入した。
過去三百年間に絶滅した動物をほぼ網羅しており、ピーター・ショーテンが絶滅動物の姿を絵で再現し、ティム・フラナリーが文章を書いた。
ふたりで世界中のおもな蒐集品の古い皮や黴臭い標本や古い絵や文書などを調査したようだが、よくここまで再現できたなと感心しました。
個人的にはもうちょっと奇妙な生き物を期待したが、最近の絶滅種だからその辺はしょうがない。でも、非常にいい本だと思いました。

It is great that this book has been written showing recent extinctions we have caused but is just a drop in the ocean compared to what has been lost as each first people reached a new part of the earth. When Europeans first reached the Americas, they were astounded by the incredible richness of wild life they found. This of course was in contrast with what was left in Europe. It took many years and the discovery of bones, in, for instance, the La Brera tar pits and in the tundra to realize that only 10 or 12 thousand years ago, America was far far richer in both mega and mini fauna. We are custodians of the little of the world's richness that still exists and seem hell bent on destroying even that. Suggested reading. Sea of slaughter by Farley Mowat.

At the end of each year I always watch the televised memorial tributes to those that has passed alway in the previous 12 months. One by one they show the faces of the famous and important who are no longer with us. I am always taken aback by an accumulated sense of lose. Through the calendar the passings are noticed and the individuals are missed and mourned for, but when you see them all at once it is overwhelming. I had a similar reaction to this book, only many magnitudes greater as the extinction of just about all of these species could have been prevented.

It is easy for us to point an accusing finger to our ancestors who were on watch when these beautiful, wonderful animals disappeared forever, however, extinction (both from preditory practices and global climate changes) is still occuring all around us. As a bird watcher and a nature lover in general this is disturbing beyond words. Thank goodness that this book exists. Without being preachy or judgemental it just presents the facts along with some of the most beautiful and moving illustrations that I have seen in quite a while. Artist Peter Schouten reminds us of our loss with paintings that are both scientifically accurate and quietly emotional. After looking through this book little more needs to be said about a gap that is forever growing wider.

I would like to add that on a recent birding trip to Hawaii I was shocked at how long it was before I saw a bird that was not an introduced species. When I saw the images of many of the Hawaiian birds that has gone extinct I was not surprised. Unfortunately many more indiginous island birds will probably follow for the same reason.

I purchased one for my family and one for a local school. From the Dodo to the Atitlan Grebe they should at least see in a book what they should be able to see alive in nature.

5つ星のうち 5.0 We hardly knew ye 2009/3/22
投稿者 Arnold - (Amazon.com)

This book is definitely a wakeup call to the fact that humans have and are causing the extinction of animals. The
beautiful paintings by Schouten portray what we have lost in a way not possible by text or statistics. Some birds, such as the Molokai 'O'o and Red-moustached Fruit-dove, may sound just like regular birds, but the paintings bring out their brilliant colors and unique shapes.

I don't think the pictures are quite as good or exciting as Schouten's newer book, "Feathered Dinosaurs", but perhaps that is unfair comparison. First, dinosaurs are simply more exciting. Second, we have little idea what feathered dinosaurs looked like, but we can afford to be more critical with representations of the Tasmanian Wolf. Regardless, the paintings are still wonderful and thought-provoking.

Another issue: the authors only include mammals, birds, and reptiles. They provide their reasons for doing so. Flannery also limits those included in the book to animals for which they have reliable drawings or descriptions. However, this excludes the Golden Toad. Thus, the majority of animals in the book are small birds and mammals, not megafauna or marine animals.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Beautiful and Indispensable Resource 2009/5/14
投稿者 Lisa M. - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I've been doing research on animals that have gone extinct since European exploration and colonization in the Americas. It is nearly impossible to find descriptions and illustrations for many extinct animals let alone find the two in the same place. Tim Flannery and Peter Shouten have travelled all over the world, examined museum and collection specimens, collected writings and oral descriptions, and compiled them into text and beautiful illustrations depicting these lost animals. This book is amazing-from the breathtaking illustrations to the excerpts from letters discussing first-hand encounters with wildlife that is now lost. I can only hope these guys will continue their research and publish another book.

This book is a must have for the wildlife enthusiast, the teacher, and children.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Recent Life We Never Knew About Before It Was Too Late 2010/7/12
投稿者 7thHeavens - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This book holds amazing and fastidiously researched paintings of wildlife, in and mostly out of the sea, which man's own fascination with, and natural inconsideration toward, have caused the demise of in their desire to claim a more prideful collection or ownership of the lifeless bodies of.
Each painting is accompanied by fascinating and briefly stated paragraphs explaining the ironic and tragic situations which led to the demise of each creature.
Each page shows the deliberate or blundering nature of man, in his contemptuous belief of entitlement over all creatures, almost all posing no threat and offering only beauty and a trusting, sympathetic and docile nature which man could learn much from.
