Ten Birds that Changed the World

  • £10.99
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Through the whole of human history, we have lived alongside birds. We have hunted them and domesticated them, venerated them and emulated them. Naturalist and author Stephen Moss tells the story of this long relationship through ten key species. From Odin’s faithful raven companions to Darwin’s finches, and from the wild turkey of the Americas to the emperor penguin as potent symbol of the climate crisis, this is a fascinating, eye-opening and engaging work of natural history.
