If you haven't read anything by Stephen Bodio, well,,,, you should find yourself lacking! Looking forward to holding this one in front of a wood fire on a cold evening. Thanks for your words that give pleasure buddy. AP
BELOW IS FROM QUERENCIA, STEPHENS BOLG
Tom: "An Eternity of Eagles" is a wonderful collage of natural, human, and literary history, hunting, travel, memoir, photos, art, illustrations, quotation, excerpt, what am I leaving out? Rather than a hodgepodge, this is a work with an intense focus, never losing sight of a creature that has been among the ruling passions of Stephen Bodio's life and which for others ranges in definition from imperial symbol to rogue predator and scavenger, with every shade of perception in between, duly noted by Bodio in elegantly crafted detail."
The NYT's Jonathan Rosen, who wrote The Life of the Skies, one of the best books ever on birding: "There is so much brute wisdom, sophisticated science, blood magic, and flat out terrific prose in Stephen Bodio’s writing that he makes me think of Merlin, educating Arthur by turning him into other animals for a while. An Eternity of Eagles is worthy of its great subject, which is not only eagles but the earthbound mortals who marvel at them."
