This is a detailed description of the history of wildfowl conservation in the USA, with some reference to Canada and Mexico. The period covered is from about the turn of the twentieth century to the time of publication. Each chapter consists of a large number of articles, contributed by 103 different contributers. Chapters include; crisis along the flyways; remembering how it was; remembering the pioneers; foursomes of the flyways; exploring the hinterlands; assessing pothole nesting success; tools of the trade; national and international partnerships; flyway councils; habitat case histories; persistent problems and issues*. This copy came to us from the collection of the late Colin Willock. The title-page has been signed by all four editors. The title-page also carries the following inscription signed by Harvey K. Nelson - "For Des and Jen Bartlett, In appreciation for your many personal contributions to the work of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the great message of natural history you have made available to the world. Harvey". The inscription is date 1-4-85. However, a label has been pasted over the names of Des and Jen Bartlett and somebody has written the name Colin Willock. Perhaps Willock himself pasted this label on or, more likely, the book was given to Willock by the Bartletts. Willock and the Bartletts worked together on the film, The Flight of the Snow Geese, as well as several other projects.
