About the Author

Raised in Southeast Washington, D.C., Rodney Stotts has achieved the highest level of master falconer. Stotts is an educator and the founder and director of a successful educational nonprofit called Rodney's Raptors. When he's not on the sanctuary property located in Laurel, Maryland, Rodney lives on seven acres in Charlotte Court House, Virginia, where he is working to turn the property into a haven for underprivileged youth and anyone who is interested in learning about falconry, wildlife, and conservation. The finished project will be called Dippy's Dream, after Rodney's deceased mother. His work has been featured National Geographic, NPR, and other national outlets. He is the subject of the documentary The Falconer. Kate Pipkin is the Senior Director of Communications and Marketing for the School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. She has contributed to The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Magazine, Johns Hopkins Magazine, Loch Raven Review, and other publications.

Reviews

"Bird Brother is a very personal story of hope, redemption and sheer guts.... What really comes across in this book is Stotts' love of what he does and the constructive role that nature has played in his life journey."-- "Biologist"

"Stotts's gift for storytelling, as an educator and public speaker, is on full display in this remarkable memoir; it's thought-provoking, moving, and inspiring." - starred review
-- "Library Journal"

"The book is embellished with impressive photographs that capture the beautiful relationships between Stotts and his bird friends. The loving relationship that can be cultivated between humans and the amazing birds is shown through charming moments between the birds and Stotts's audience, too. Bird Brother is a memoir that is apt in its demonstration of nature's ability to transform people."-- "Foreword Reviews"

"Humanity and hawks. The lines between two-legged and taloned blur beautifully in Bird Brother. Rodney Stotts' life is more than a story of man and nature, it is a no holds barred bittersweet odyssey; the much-needed, uplifted, uniquely-hued heroic epic of a determined soul who through a love of wild birds, delivers a heart-rending lesson in how grounded possibilities can soar beyond perception. There is no more powerfully positive sign of these times than a hawk on Rodney's raised fist."--J. Drew Lanham, cultural & conservation ornithologist, birder, and author of "The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man's Love Affair with Nature"

"Rodney Stotts' story is a tremendously moving tribute to the power of birds to transform a life. Searingly honest, Bird Brother is a love letter to the avian world from a fiercely dedicated master falconer and tireless conservationist who not only does the work--no matter how unglamorous--but also inspires others to see the beauty of nature and find their place within it."--Julia Zarankin, author of "Field Notes from an Unintentional Birder"

"If you've loved H is for Hawk or any sort of memoir that intersects with nature, you'll like this one!"-- "Smart Bitches Trashy Books"
