The Keepers of the Ghost Bird

Jenn Dean et al.

THE KEEPERS OF THE GHOST BIRD chronicles the astonishing rediscovery of the Bermuda Petrel, believed to be extinct since 1625. It is the story of a tenacious bird, the men who fight to save them and the unceasing destruction and degradation of habitat in Bermuda and around the world. Dean’s writing is a fluid blend of natural and human history, vivid and poetic, it is a heartfelt plea for conservation and the story of a personal quest and discovery.

John R. Nelson has contributed the essays “Parting Words” (on writing eulogies) and “Birds and War” to the Massachusetts Review. His narrative “A Morning on the Rio Negro” was the feature article in the June 2017 issue of Birdwatching, and his essay “Dislocation” is included in the Summer 2017 online issue of The Compassion Anthology. He has been awarded a 2018 Pushcart Prize for “Funny Bird Sex,” the lead essay in the Winter 2016 issue of The Antioch Review. John is also the author of Cultivating Judgment (New Forums Press), on the teaching of critical thinking across the curriculum.

The Keepers of the Ghost Bird is nature writing at its finest—a fluid blend of natural and human history, vivid images of the cahows’ rugged home, a heartfelt plea for bird conservation, and the story of a personal quest and discovery.”  –John R. Nelson, Introduction to The Keepers of the Ghost Bird
