More Than a Meal: The Turkey in History, Myth, Ritual and Reality
de Karen Davis(Ed. Lantern Books,US) Isbn : 1930051883
19.00 €
This scholarly and authoritative book examines the cultural and literal history, as well as the natural history and biological needs and concerns of turkeys. Davis explores how turkeys came to be seen as birds who were not only the epitome of failure or stupidity but also the suitable centerpiece of the celebration of freedom in America itself-Thanksgiving. She examines the many varieties of turkeys and uncovers the methods by which millions of turkeys are raised, fattened, and slaughtered on farms around America today. Davis takes us back to European folklore about turkeys, the myths, fairytales, and downright lies told about turkeys and their habits and habitats. She shows how turkeys in the wild have complex lives and family units, and how they were an integral part of Native American a...

Birds of North America

Birds of North America
de Noel Grove(Ed. Hugh Lauter Levin Associates) Isbn : 0883637960
57.00 €
This oversized volume contains more than 200 bird photographs, many full- or double-page, on quality paper. Using informal groupings, such as "Game Birds," Grove (Preserving Eden, LJ 6/1/92) organizes the works of seven noted wildlife photographers into six chapters with an accompanying text. Though not directly related to the photographs, the informative text is filled with interesting tidbits about birds and is fun to read. Photo captions are adequate but lack data regarding season and location?a minor flaw. The raison d'etre for this work is the stunning photography. The birds are captured at their peak of beauty, and the photographers have created a wonderful sense of presence for each picture. Bird and nature lovers will lose themselves in these pages. Highly recommended for general c...
