The Great Auk, Garefowl, or Penguin of the North was a substantial sea bird whose extinction was entirely the work of humankind.
The bird’s existence ended on the morning of June 3, 1844, when the last two recorded Great Auks were killed by three fishermen on the island of Eldey off the southwest coast of Iceland.
With pictures and through the words of Errol Fuller, a world-renowned authority on extinct birds, Griswold will illustrate the epic destruction of a species.
