Introduction by Jim Fowler. One would be hard-pressed to find a falconer who isn't aware of Morley Nelson. The funny-looking triangular devices attached to telephone poles seen throughout the West, designed to protect raptors from electrocution, exist because of him. Nelson has lived more than most could fit into a couple of lifetimes. This book captures the essence of this remarkable man, his military time, his work on films with a variety of raptors, his work with eagles and solving those electrocution problems which heretofore had claimed so many birds of prey, his promotion and establishment of the Snake River Birds of Prey Natural Area and his involvement in saving the peregrine.
