Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illumination in the Flatwoods is the account of an extraordinary experiment: Naturalist Joe Hutto incubates two dozen wild-turkey eggs with the intention of human-imprinting and raising the hatchlings in the spirit of Konrad Lorenz. But the relationship that develops between the author and the wild birds so profoundly changes his life that he wonders, appropriately, who has imprinted whom.Hutto's is an unforgettable story. Lovingly told with skill and humor, and vibrating with the natural wonders of the Florida flatwoods and the fascinating behavior of the most elusive of the wild game birds, Illumination in the Flatwoods will amaze and enrich all who share this season with the wild turkey.
