Reviews

'Unlike many other second editions, this is packed with new exciting material...this is readable yet full of information and is an outstanding example that will be a baseline in the future.' Highland News Group (October 2010) 'What a subject, and what a book! Fascinating facts appear on every page and the secrets of golden eagles' high-flying lives are laid bare in this book, which seems to have captured a whiff of the wild outdoors in its words...Very highly recommended.' Birds {Main} (May 2011)
