Pigeons and their behavior are beautifully chronicled in this unique personal account.

Pigeons were probably the first birds to be domesticated, 6000 years ago in the Middle East, and have been bred into a multiplicity of forms and colors unsuspected by those familiar only with the commonplace birds of parks and barnyards. Bodio discovered the pleasures of pigeon-keeping as a child; in this affec tionate but unsentimental memoir, he celebrates such diverse aspects of the hobby as racing homing pigeons, breeding rare ornamental varieties, and simply enjoying watching his flock in flight. He also describes his experiences and relationships with a delightful assortment of fellow pigeon lovers, an engaging group of humans. Nicely written, both entertaining and informative, this will be a pleasant if perhaps not essential addition to popular natural history collections; its appeal will not be limited to bird lovers.
