10 best books of September: the Monitor's picks

Of the many excellent books coming our way this fall, here are 10 September releases that the Monitor's book critics particularly enjoyed.

8. "Resurrection Science," by M.R. O'Connor

What is a species worth, especially when its natural environment no longer exists? This question becomes the driving force behind journalist M.R. O’Connor’s important new book. Starting with the spray toad, O’Connor tells the story of eight endangered or extinct species, ranging from desert pupfish to Neanderthals, using each to explore the issues at the heart of wildlife protection. You can read the Monitor's full review of "Resurrection Science" here.
