About this book

This is the sixth book in the series based on a bird which gives its name to the history of farming. The story takes you around the history of the bird from its first remains found in a cave in Derbyshire to the first drawing found on a mosaic in Pompeii in Italy. It tells you the effects of old to modern farming on the bird and even shows Charles Darwin with his famous beaks.
