Today I read an awesome book called Gifts of an Eagle, by Kent Durden, and I had to make a post about it because it was such a good read. It is only 160 pages long, and the entire book is extremely interesting. Many parts of it gave me the chills, and the end actually brought tears to my eyes.
"What a superb book...an outstanding story of one of the grandest creatures of nature, written with rare knowledge and understanding of the subject. It combines keen observation with a remarkable intimate relationship, so seldom found in studies of wild creatures." -Joy Adamson, author of Born Free
"A glad adventure into the fierce free world behind those golden eyes. Mr. Druden has found a way to hand us the friendship of a proud creature, and that's a gift rarely given..." -Richard Back, author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull
"Gifts of an Eagle is totally delightful...a very likable human story told with skill and good humor." -Brooks Atkinson
"A thoroughly delightful book, one that I coudl not put aside once I started to read. Mr. Durden has put the lie to many myths about the golden eagle....No collection of books about birds can be called a library unless it contains a copy of Gifts of an Eagle. -George L. Small, Winner of the National Book Award for The Blue Whale.
"An extraordinary book in a beautiful cause--better understanding of the great predatory birds. I was fascinated by the story from beginning to end." -Douglas Fairbaim, author of A Squirrel of One's Own.
"We happily add Lady, the phenomenal and memorable golden eagle, to our widening acquaintance with wildlife and the possibilities of human contact, mutual association, respect and affection....May she and her kind survive and flourish...." -Helen and SCott Nearing, authors of Living the Good Life and The Maple Sugar Book.
