What you should know about the purple martin, America's most wanted bird by J.L.Wade (1984)


Vintage Paperback in Good (G) condition. Light bumping on spine, otherwise clean and straight. 

A Purple Martin can eat 2,000 mosquitoes per day!

This startling sentence serves as a fitting introduction to an equally startling story. It is the unique story of a small town, an insect-eating bird, and the rise of both to national prominence, underscored by one of the vital issues of our time-- that of natural versus chemical pest control. It is a story which clearly illuminates the nation's growing concern for the safety of our environment. This book is not only about the bird and its benefits to man, but also about the unusual methods by which the birds' boosters proved its effectiveness and then told its story to the nation. This story will inspire you and bring into focus the forces working to insure your health and the survival and happiness of your children and generations yet unborn. This is a book which you should read now.
