Written by one of America's leading ornithologists, this is more than simply descriptions of raptors. It is a personal, anecdotal, account of all North American birds of prey, taking phyiscal and behavioural facts and interweaving them with observations and stories, in a style reminiscent of Edward Abbey.
"[...] Anyone with even a remote interest in birds of prey should read this book. There are plenty of books that will assist you in identifying raptors, and others where you can learn about their lives. But after reading this book, you will feel like you know these majestic birds, and you will not look at them in the same way again."
