Summary in French:
La monographie de référence sur un oiseau de légende. Cet ouvrage est la synthèse de plus de cinquante années d'observations systématiques. Il permet de découvrir tous les aspects de la biologie de cet oiseau remarquable. De nombreux chapitres ont été augmentés des connaissances actuelles sur l'espèce. De nombreuses photographies et illustrations agrémentent et soulignent la précision des observations de l'oiseau dans son milieu naturel. La description de scènes de la vie intime de ce prédateur hors du commun donnera satisfaction aussi bien à l'ornithologue exigeant qu'au simple néophyte amoureux de la nature sauvage dont le pèlerin est le symbole mythique.
