From exploring how birds achieve the miracle of flight to why birds sing, nature writer Simon Barnes illuminates with wit, wisdom and affection, the natural history of birds, the myth and symbolism attached to them and the ways in which humans have both nurtured and persecuted them over the centuries. A wonderful celebration of our feathered friends, finely illustrated with black and white illustrations. 


Simon Barnes is the multi-award-winning former chief sportswriter for The Times. He is also a novelist, nature writer and horseman, and the author of over 20 books.
