Ivorybill Hunters

The Search for Proof in a Flooded Wilderness

Geoffrey E. Hill

Professor and author Geoff Hill gives a first hand account of the discovery and follow-up search for the rarest and more noble of North American birds, the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. Rather than a bland technical account, Hill conveys the trials and tribulations of chasing a mostly silent and elusive bird through a vast swamp wilderness.
