Book Overview

There are more crows now than ever. Their abundance is both an indicator of ecological imbalance and a generous opportunity to connect with the animal world. CROW PLANET reminds us that we do not need to head to faraway places to encounter "nature." Rather, even in the suburbs and cities where we live we are surrounded by wild life such as crows, and through observing them we can enhance our appreciation of the world's natural order. CROW PLANET richly weaves Haupt's own "crow stories" as well as scientific and scholarly research and the history and mythology of crows, culminating in a book that is sure to make readers see the world around them in a very different way.

    Lyanda Haupt does a wonderful job of making us aware of how embedded we are in wild life (two words). As I write this there is a crow sitting atop my neighbor's roof. It is looking all around, and certainly sees me sitting on my deck, and sees my two dogs sprawled nearby. It is preening its wing feathers, perhaps waiting for a call from other crows to gather for the night, or to drive away an eagle. It is a bird that has a new measure of respect in my mind, thanks to this book. I have a new feeling of kinship with it, as a fellow creature making its way in a world we both inhabit. Of the two of us, I have the ability to realize my impacts on our environment, and this book helps me to see my responsibility to act thoughtfully in the midst of the natural world that surrounds me.
