The Bald Eagle: The Improbable Journey of America's Bird
From today’s vantage, the bald eagle holds a mythical place in our collective imaginations, now acting as an emblem of the American ideal. When the bird was selected in 1782 to be on the Great Seal of the United States, however, its place in the wider consciousness was more nuanced. In his rousing history, Jack E. Davis presents the complicated story of the bald eagle, including how ornithologists of the late 18th and early 19th centuries were much less concerned with the conservation of these birds of prey.
