Thumbnail Filmstrip of Eternity of Eagles - Stephen Bodio - Hard Cover, Dust Wrapper, 208 pages Images
DescriptionFrom one of the foremost author/naturalists in the country, Stephen J. Bodio, comes a compulsively readable natural and social history of the most beautiful bird in the world -- the eagle -- with a lengthy introduction by Annie Proulx.
The Eagle's Shadow traces our love-hate relationship to these "living dinosaurs," from Neolithic rock art and Native American religion through the practices of Kazakh falconers who use them to hunt wolves, all the way to contemporary art and popular culture. It examines the natural history, evolution, and habits of eagles, as well as contemporary threats like habitat loss and pesticides. The Eagle's Shadow is a profusely illustrated celebration of all things eagle, by a naturalist who has kept eagles himself and ridden with the eagle tribes of Central Asia."
