The Meaning of Birds

A passionate and informative celebration of birds and their ability to help us understand the world, with charming illustrations taken from 19th century ornithological works. Explores how birds achieve the miracle of flight; why birds sing; what they tell us about the seasons of the year and what their presence tells us about the places they inhabit; the uses of feathers; and how humans have nurtured and persecuted birds over the centuries. From the mocking-birds of the Galapagos who guided Charles Darwin toward his evolutionary theory, to the changing patterns of migration that alert us to the reality of contemporary climate change, Simon Barnes explores both the intrinsic wonder of what it is to be a bird and the myriad ways in which birds can help us understand the meaning of life.

Hardback with ribbon marker, 7 " x 7 ", 319 pages, 75 black and white illustrations.
