Description
Throughout human history, birds have fascinated and inspired us with their beauty, songs, and grace in flight. Over the course of seven years, Victor Schrager photographed nearly 100 species of birds—including golden eagles, screech owls, waxwings, cormorants, and chickens—in the hands of ornithologists. Alongside the book's 85 sepia-toned images, a text by the Booker Prize–winning author of Possession and Portraits in Fiction traces the rich history of birds in literature.
