The Bald Eagle: The Improbable Journey of America’s Bird
“Combining natural, political, and cultural histories, Davis offers a wealth of surprising information and demolishes popular misconceptions... This account soars.” Publishers Weekly
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Gulf comes The Bald Eagle, a sweeping work of cultural and natural history that asks us to reconsider the story of America through the lens of our relationship to the natural world. Using spectacular stories of founding fathers, rapacious hunters, heroic bird rescuers and the lives of bald eagles themselves, Davis demonstrates how one bird’s wondrous journey provides inspiration today, as we grapple with environmental peril on a larger scale.
