As far back as modern man can be traced on this planet, the bird has been associated with supernatural powers. Edward Armstrong, who is both a foremost British naturalist and a skilled folklorist, has examined this corpus of ancient bird beliefs. His results indicate a curious cult of bird lore that once extended across Europe and Asia. Includes an index.
