Description

Dagger-clawed, hook-beaked, sleek-feathered, and proud, the eagle is the king of the bird world--and a vision that awes humanity. From winged messengers in ancient times to symbols of sovereignty in the present, eagles have captured our imagination with their majesty, fearsomeness, and grace. These awe-inspiring birds have all these qualities and more. Because few people have actually glimpsed the bald and golden eagles--North America's two species--in flight, these predators have become creatures of myth. Ninety stunning and action-packed color photographs from the world's top nature photographers portray the grace and power of these birds that have vision five times superior to ours, breakneck speed, split second timing, and striking agility. They include heartwarming close-ups of a newborn eaglet's first tentative steps, gripping images of carnivorous adults ravaging their kill, and stunning aerial views of the raptors soaring through the air. An absorbing account of the everyday behavior of th ese birds of prey. The author lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
