SUMMARY

Breathtaking illustrations combine with poetry and fascinating facts about endangered or threatened animals to give young readers an intriguing look at the contemporary problem of species endangerment. Focusing on four different environments, the series looks at the situations of various animals, explains why they are in danger, and looks at possible ways to save them. Each animal is also paid homage by both the beautiful paintings of wildlife artist Jean Sherlock and by the touching and elegant poetry of various writers. With the beautiful poetry of Randall Jarrell, Jane Yolen, and others, The Skies takes a look at endangered animals like masked bobwhites, Hawaiian hawks, harpy eagles, and Kitti's hog-nosed bats
