This is an extraordinary book--a tribute to the multi-faceted aspects of our corvid brethren. From traditional stories and myths about the birds to raven and cros ethologies and the role of corvids in history, literature and lawm it is a masterpiece. Beautifully written and illustrated, it is a must-read for bird lovers and all who honor NAture.
