Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle by Thor Hanson
Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle

I spoke with the author and I am very excited to buy the book. As a fellow bird biologist, it is great to read up on the subject that we both love: Birds and how they were created to be fantastic flying machines. I read an excerpt and he writes in a very engaging manner. The general public will enjoy this book because he writes with passion rather than the boring scientific dribble.
