Summary, etc.:
Many more of the world's biggest and baddest creatures--including the black rhino, the dodo, giant tortoises, and the great auk--have vanished since our world became truly global. Last of the Giants chronicles those giant animals and apex predators who were pushed to extinction in the modern era. At the same time, the book also highlights those giant species that remain--even though many barely survive, living in such low numbers that they are on the brink of leaving this world within the next few decades. The continuing loss of these spectacular animals is troubling and tragic, for it leaves us inhabiting a smaller, much more impoverished world. However, the book also includes a hopeful not throughout, for many endangered species can still be saved.-- Publisher's website.
