From the Inside Flap:

Ravens have lived in North America for a million years or more.Considered either a good or bad omen or sign, depending on the time and place, ravens have always fascinated humans.

And they wanted to know more about these wonderful birds. The Un-Common Raven: one smart bird will make you smarter about ravens and, hopefully, curious to know more about this amazing backyard bird.
