Eagle's Plume: The Struggle to Preserve the Life and Haunts of America's Bald Eagle

Eagle's Plume: The Struggle to Preserve the Life and Haunts of America's Bald Eagle Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Symbol of power, strength, and freedom, the American bald eagle appears on coins, dollar bills, postage stamps, identification cards, and the presidential seal. It is seen everywhere except in the sky, although that is changing; nearly extinct in 1970, the bald eagle has made a modest comeback.
 
In Eagles Plume, Bruce E. Beans recounts the compelling, centuries-old story of the bald eagles place in American culture and landscape an its struggle for survival. Reviled by western stockmen as a killer of lambs and calves, the bald eagle has been deified by environmentalists as a reminder of Americas natural heritage. When the great national bird was robbed of its habitat and poisoned with pesticides, federal and environmental groups and local communities rallied to save it. Their heroic efforts are chronicled in the book, which also takes the measure and pulse of the bird that so impressed ancient storytellers.
