An Eternity Of Eagles

by Stephen J. Bodio, An Eternity Of Eagles Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download An Eternity Of Eagles books, An Eternity of Eagles The Human History of the Most Fascinating Bird in the World A compulsively readable natural and social history, An Eternity of Eagles is a profusely illustrated celebration of all things eagle, by a naturalist who has kept eagles himself and ridden with the eagle tribes of Central Asia. "His vivid description of an eagle, if it could imagine itself, is of a 'carnivorous Buddhist.' Through Bodio’s insights we get a strange glimpse of these other minds that share the earth with us." --Annie Proulx, author of The Shipping News and Brokeback Mountain From one of the foremost author/naturalists in the country, Stephen J. Bodio, comes a compulsively readable natural and social history of the most beautiful bird in the world -- the eagle, with a lengthy and admiring introduction by Annie Proulx. The Eagle’s Shadow traces our love-hate relationship to these “living dinosaurs,” from Neolithic rock art and Native American religion through the practices of Kazakh falconers who use them to hunt wolves, and to contemporary art and popular culture. Proulx sums up best the heart of this book: “Those of us who are interested in bird behavior beyond the feeder or the identification guide book find meager pickings when it comes to information. I am fortunate that my house faces a cliff with a river at the base where I can watch raptors, water fowl, and a hundred other species. The nests of a pair of bald eagles and another upriver inhabited by golden eagles are in sight from the breakfast table. I have plenty of books on birds, but the information on why the big eagles do what they do is hard to dig out. Eagle behavior is usually lumped together with the general behavior of the Accipitrids, but a single book focused on the rich lore and sweep of eagledom did not seem to exist… . Bodio’s beautifully written and authoritative book, Eagles, is a primary source of information as well as an omnium gatherum from literature, film and mythology concerning these large, striking birds.” Stephen Bodio was born and educated in Boston and has lived in a rural New Mexico village for over thirty years. He has traveled extensively in Europe, Africa, and Asia and has written five books.

The Eagle Watchers

by Ruth Tingay, The Eagle Watchers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Eagle Watchers books, Eagles have fascinated humans for millennia. For some, the glimpse of a distant eagle instantly becomes a treasured lifelong memory. Others may never encounter a wild eagle in their lifetime. This book was written by people who have dedicated years to the study of eagles, to provide an insider's view for all readers, but especially those who have never been up close and personal with these magnificent yet often misunderstood creatures. In their stories, twenty-nine leading eagle researchers share their remarkable field experiences, providing personal narratives that don't feature in their scientific publications. They tell of their fear at being stalked by grizzly bears, their surprise at being followed by the secret police, their embarrassment when accidentally firing mortar rockets over a school gymnasium, and their sense of awe at tracking eagles via satellite. The reader experiences the cultural shock of being guest of honor at a circumcision ceremony, the absurdity of sharing an aquatic car with the Khmer Rouge, and the sense of foreboding at being press-ganged into a frenzied tribal death march through the jungle. The Eagle Watchers covers twenty-four species on six continents, from well known (bald eagle; golden eagle), to obscure (black-and-chestnut eagle; New Guinea harpy eagle), and from common (African fish eagle) to critically endangered (Philippine eagle; Madagascar fish eagle). The diverse experiences vividly described in this book reveal the passion, dedication, and sense of adventure shared by those who study these majestic birds and strive for their conservation. Featuring stunning color photographs of the eagles, information on raptor conservation, a global list of all eagle species with ranges and conservation status, and a color map of the sites visited in the book, The Eagle Watchers will appeal to birders, conservationists, and adventure travelers alike. To further support the conservation programs described in this book, all royalties are being donated to two leading nonprofit organizations for raptor conservation training and fieldwork: Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Intern Program and the National Birds of Prey Trust.

In The Shadow Of The Eagle

by Donna M. Loring, In The Shadow Of The Eagle Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download In The Shadow Of The Eagle books, Maine is the only state in the nation to have tribal representatives seated in its legislative body, a practice that began in the 1820s. Although the representatives from the Penobscot Nation and the Passamaquoddy Tribe don't have voting power on the house floor, they serve on committees and may chair committees. Donna's first session as representative of the Penobscot Nation was a difficult one—a personal struggle to have a "voice," but also because of the issues: changing offensive names, teaching Native American history in Maine schools, casinos and racinos, and the interpretation of sovereign rights for tribes. Some of the struggles and issues remain as she continues to serve, and the perspective she offers—as a Native American and as a legislator—is both valuable and fascinating.

Birthing Eternity

by Jane Elizabeth Cody, Birthing Eternity Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Birthing Eternity books, Are we living in what the Bible calls the Last Days? It feels like it, but how can you know for certain? What if everything you have been taught about the End Times is wrong? What if the doctrines of well-meaning theologians who lived in a day before planes, trains, and automobiles, before phones, TVs, and satellite communications, are as helpful as the understanding of an elephant provided by the four proverbial blind men? Based on their limited knowledge, gleaned from what their hands have touched, they proclaim an elephant is like a rope, a snake, a tree, a fan. With the clarity of sight, we know none of these accurately describes an elephant! Birthing Eternity makes a compelling case to take off your theological blindfolds and examine the elephant standing before you. By tracing the correlation between documented history and the biblical prophecy, Birthing Eternity will give you answers that are both unexpected and profound. Find out how God has fulfilled His Word in astounding detail and gain critical insight about current events that are on everyone’s mind in this unsettled and challenging time. Birthing Eternity makes the Last Days easy to understand. It is proof that the message of End Times Scripture does not require top-secret information, prophetic visions, or a degree in theology. It is simply a matter of connecting the dots between what is plainly stated in Scripture and human events. More than that, you will find assurance that the unfolding of Last Days events isn’t something to be feared, but rather an exciting adventure. No matter what, there is hope for a bright future—including eternity.
