"This book is the first to produce a grand overview of the human-corvid complex and is truly something to crow about. With any luck In the Company of Crows and Ravens will stimulate more people to connect with nature by enjoying the antics of these easily observed birds." from the foreword by Paul Ehrlich, coauthor of Wild Solutions "Crows and ravens stir up much interest, precisely for the reasons John Marzluff and Tony Angell give in this handsomely illustrated work." Bernd Heinrich, author of Mind of the Raventrajectory"Vom Verlag:
From the cave walls at Lascaux to the last painting by Van Gogh, from the works of Shakespeare to those of Mark Twain, there is clear evidence that crows and ravens influence human culture. Yet this influence is not unidirectional, say the authors of this fascinating book: people profoundly influence crow culture, ecology and evolution as well. John Marzluff and Tony Angell examine the often surprising ways that crows and humans interact. The authors contend that those interactions reflect a process of 'cultural coevolution'. They offer a challenging new view of the human-crow dynamic, a view that may change our thinking not only about crows but also about ourselves. Featuring over 100 original drawings, the book takes a close look at the influences people have had on the lives of crows throughout history and at the significant ways crows have altered human lives.
