Presents a concise natural history of the bird and its centuries-long companionship with people. The authors discuss the martin's scientific classification and names, its migration and range, and its family life. They go on to relate stories of how Native Americans and European colonists attracted Purple Martins and how Americans througout the 19th and 20th centuries helped martins survive the loss of natural nesting sites by providing houses for them.
This book is a convenient, one-stop source for scads of martin information and will make informative and pleasing reading for all of [the public] who are attracted to martins, including martin 'landlords.' William J. Graber III, past vice president, American Birding Association, and past president, Texas Ornithological Society and The Nature Conservancy of Texas
