With their combination of grace and predatory prowess, eagles have symbolized pride, freedom, and independence of spirit since humankind's earliest times. With individual profiles as well as color photographs, this book encompasses each of the world's 68 currently recognized eagle species, from the huge Steller's sea-eagle that soars above Japan's winter ice floes to the diminutive Little Eagle that hunts over the Australian outback. Featuring chapters organized by habitat, the book investigates the lifestyle and unique adaptations of each eagle species, as well as the significance of eagles in world cultures and the threats they face from humans.
