Summary "The ostrich, the emu, and the rhea--together with the kiwi and the cassowary--are essentially the court jesters of the avian world, because they can't do the one thing that birds are famous for doing. They can't fly. But exactly how--and why--did these birds abandon flight? It's been one of the natural world's great mysteries. And now DNA is promising to give us the answer"--Container.
