GENERAL BIRD BOOKS
Text by Mark Cocker

Vast in both scope and scale, this book explores and celebrates the relationship between birds and people. Throughout history their flight has inspired the human imagination so that birds are embedded in our religions, folklore, music and arts.
Part natural history and part cultural study, this book describes and maps the entire spectrum of our engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics and the environment.
In the end, this is a book as much about us as it is about birds.
