Our vanishing wild life: Its extermination and reservation.

New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1913.

One of the first books wholly devoted to endangered wild animals. Hornaday revolutionized museum exhibits by displaying wildlife in their natural settings, and is credited with discovering the American crocodile, saving the American bison and the Alaskan fur seal from extinction.
