The California condor is the largest bird in North America.
Scientists have found condor fossils that are nearly 100,000 years
old. As more people settled in the American west, however, condors
lost much of their habitat to human development. By 1982, fewer
than 25 California condors lived in the wild. Read this book to
find out more about California condors, how they came close to
extinction, and what people are doing do help make sure condors
stay on the road to recovery.
