Description

Reviews

This first novel from Greg Lewbart, a veterinarian and assistant professor of aquatic medicine at North Carolina State University, is a page-turning scientific mystery that raises important issues about man's exploitation of the environment. This timely story revolves around the discovery of a previously thought to be extinct species of bird, the ivory-billed woodpecker.  The novel is situated in southern Florida and the hero is a state game warden named Hal Noble who is dedicated to the conservation of nature and the environment. He finds himself pitted against the unscrupulous Malcolm Grimes who has sold information of the bird's whereabouts to several diverse parties with an interest in exploiting the animal.

"… easy reading, interesting, fun, and a real page-turner." -- Kathy Lyon, Newsletter of the Association of Avian Veterinarians.

"Ivory Hunters' fictional aspects are exciting and well paced. But what makes this book different is its educational value and centering its conflicts around environmentally sensitive areas" -- Mike Mazur, Florida Naturalist, Spring 1997.

"Ivory Hunters is a superb ecological mystery that raises important issues about man's exploitation of the environment. Exceptionally well written" -- The Midwest Book Review, June 1998.

"The book has suspense and intrigue as well as some fascinating facts about woodpeckers and the critical habitat in Florida in which they live..easy to read and except for very rare profanity, is suitable for a young teenage audience and adults." -- Nancy A. Carpenter, DVM. Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery, Volume 11, No. 1, 2001
