About this book

By taking in a great horned owlet in distress into his care, nurturing it, and then releasing it, radio tagged, into the wild, Terman was able to track `Stripey' for over six years, observing over time the behaviour of a hand-reared individual re-united with its natural environment. `There are very few books written by knowledgeable scientists that truly show the animal (and the researcher) `beneath the skin'. This is one of them' - Bernd Heinrich.
