Media reviews
[Bernd Heinrich] tells the tender story of a very small animal experiment. The experiment is clearly a ruse--an excuse for indulging the infatuation that blossoms when a man stumbles over a baby owl. Its tiny talon sticking out of the snow catches his attention... Mr. Heinrich ... knows only too well that naturalists take a dim view of the urge to remove a bird from the wild and take it home to nurse. This book, complete with affectionate drawings and photographs by the author, may serve as his apology. -- Bonnie Bilyeu Gordon The New York Times Book Review Bernd Heinrich is a nature lover, a scholar, and a fine writer... One Man's Owl straddles the line between formal science and sheer love of the wild, and does it beautifully. -- David M. Graber The Los Angeles Times Book Review
