Title: Eternity of Eagles, The: Human History of the Most Fascinating Bird in the World Author: BODIO STEPHEN J Format: HARDCOVER Imprint: GLOBE PEQUOT PRESS Price: $16.95 Publishing status: Active
This fascinating, abundantly illustrated natural and cultural history of eagles comes from naturalist Steve Bodio, who rode with the horsemen of Mongolia to write Eagle Dreams, and has himself hunted with falcons for 50 years. He traces our love-hate relationship with these "living dinosaurs," from Neolithic rock art and Native American religion through the practices of Kazakh falconers who use eagles to hunt wolves, and American ranchers who find the birds more a threat than a symbol of national pride. "His vivid description of an eagle, if it could imagine itself, is of a 'carnivorous Buddhist,' writes Annie Proulx in her introduction. "Through Bodio's insights we get a strange glimpse of these other minds that share the earth with us.... We cannot inhabit their minds, but we can appreciate the gulf of distance between our two species, brilliantly illustrated here."
