Overview

"A very sensitive nature-narrative which will take its place with the classics of the genre." -Best Seller For years the rocky north-facing slope of Hawk Mountain in eastern Pennsylvania attracted scores of hunters who would shoot hawks, falcons, and eagles out of the sky. In 1934, Maurice Broun came to Hawk Mountain to establish the world's first sanctuary for birds of prey. Today, the mountain's famous lookout attracts thousands of birders, nature-lovers, and scientists to marvel at the river of raptors that annually comes streaming by. The story of how Hawk Mountain went from hunting hotspot to a thriving research center with an important role in raptor conservation is told in vivid prose. Now available in paperback for the first time. Michael Harwood wrote widely on environmental matters for a variety of publications. He was the coauthor, along with Mary Durant, of On the Road with John James Audubon, which won the John Burroughs Medal for nature writing. He also served as editor of the American Heritage History of the American People.
