Birds in Legend and Folklore: Now Available!
This is a full length work dedicated to a fairly exhaustive treatment of hundreds of cultures spanning thousands of years in their use of birds in a folkloric capacity. The density of the book is high, owing to its academic, rigorous nature, and those intrigued by ornithology will probably enjoy this work as well as cryptid lovers and folklore buffs.
It is very much worth noting the symbolic significance of some birds over others; the crow, eagle, peacock, and dove stand out as the true "A-listers" of the avian world. It is not often that I am engrossed in the same work I am editing but this was definitely one of those happy times- the differential treatment of the Phoenix by a half dozen nations in the olden days is fascinating.
