    1. This contains a great history of crows ravens and tells many stories from different cultures regarding their attitudes toward this beautiful birds.


    2. Ravens are my favorite birds So that means this is a totally biased book review since the book features ravens Any book that features ravens automatically get a star just for showcasing ravens This book I liked so much that I bought it twice once the original paperback edition which I lost through life s misadventures and the 10th anniversary edition.If you are looking for a book just on how ravens behave then you are screwed Go elsewhere This book not only looks at raven behavior centering on t [...]
