Inhaltsangabe zu "Mind of the Raven"
Throughout history there has existed an extraordinary relationship between humans and ravens. Ravens, like early humans, are scavengers on the kills of great carnivores. As scavengers, ravens were associated with hunters they found in the north: wolves and later men. The trinity of wolf, man, and raven in the hunt is an ancient one. In considering the appeal of the raven, Bernd Heinrich suspects that a meeting of the minds might reside in that hunting trinity.§Heinrich involves us in his quest to get inside the mind of the raven. But as animals can only be spied on by getting quite close Heinrich adopts ravens, thereby becoming a "raven father," as well as observing them in their natural habitat. He studies their daily routines, and in the process, paints a vivid picture of the ravens world. At the heart of this book are Heinrich s love and respect for these complex and engaging creatures, and through his keen observation and analysis, we become their intimates, too.§Heinrich s passion for ravens has led him around the world in his research. MIND OF THE RAVEN takes you on an exotic journey--from New England to Germany, Montana to Baffin Island in the high Arctic--offering dazzling accounts of how science works in the field, filtered through the eyes of a passionate observer of nature.§Heinrich has a true gift, and in his stories, his beautiful writing, illustrations, and photography, the ravens come alive. Each new discovery and insight into their behavior is thrilling to read, at once lyrical and scientific.
