Synopsis: Color photographs depict the peregrine falcon in all its grace and beauty, and text describes how the bird has fared against man and pesticides, its biggest enemies

From the Back Cover: "On the wings of her two magnificent books about grizzly bears and wolves, the Canadian naturalist Candace Savage presents Peregrine Falcons with her usual solid science writing and poignant, powerful photos. The resurrection of this predator by captive breeding and careful release after the DDT crisis nearly wiped out the species stands as one of the great triumphs of conservation."

-- The Chicago Tribune

"Striking...[the] photos and detailed text provide vivid insight into these fascinating raptors."

-- San Francisco Chronicle

"[Candace Savage] relates man's long, turbulent relationship with the peregrine, a love-hate relationship that nearly spelled extinction of the bird."

-- Spokane Review

This is another paragraph Synopsis: The photographs in this book depict the peregrine falcon in all its grace and beauty. Peregrines are among the most widely distributed of birds, at home on six continents. Never plentiful, they are now among the rarest of living creatures. The cause of their decline, in the 1950s and 1960s, was the contamination of their food chain by pesticides, primarily DDT. As author Candace Savage warns, DDT and other persistent pesticides, long banned in developed countries, are still manufactured in chemical plants and exported to the Third World, while chemical compounds currently used in Western countries may be almost as deadly to the birds. Candace Savage is the author of Wolves and Grizzly Bears. Seller Inventory # 1843
