A Summer's Worth of Dingy Motels, Poison Oak, Ravenous Insects, and the Rarest Species in North AmericaBook - 2013
MacDonald details his four-month road trip across the U.S. and Canada to spot some of the endangered species that call North America home. Accompanied by his wife, two children, and the family dog, MacDonald travels from British Columbia, along the west coast of the U.S., through the Southwest and Florida, up the east coast of the U.S., and finally to eastern Canada and then back home to BC. Along the way, he offers fascinating details about the natural history of the endangered species he seeks, as well as threats like overpopulation, commercial fishing, and climate change that are driving them towards extinction.
