About this book

The home to one of the highest concentrations of buteo hawks in North America the Zumwalt is almost entirely managed by cattle ranchers. This book examines the complexities of the ecosystem, the land-use debate and the life and habitat of the hawks.

"In my review of the author's previous work, Wings for my Flight, I mentioned that I was sufficiently impressed with it that I wanted to read this book as well. I was not disappointed. This is a well-written and compelling story that is worth reading on its own merit. But the lessons it holds for future conservation makes it even easier to recommend."
- Grant McCreary (17-08-2009), read the full review at The Birder's Library
