Alaskas Magnificent Eagles
by Cary Anderson is a celebration of the
tenacity, strength and beauty of one of the worlds most
recognizable birds. Illustrated with a collection of stunning
full-color photographs, this is an in depth look at the eagle
as a symbol, as a powerful raptor and, most of all,
as a magnificent creature.
This documentary for the Alaska
Geographic Society focuses on Alaskas most
abundant eagle species, the majestic bald eagle, but highlights each of
North Americas four species,
all of which can be found in Alaska. The well-researched text details not
only eagle behavior, but the history,
folklore and preservation that have allowed eagles to thrive in a land that
once persecuted them.
Alaska's Magnificent Eagles covers
a wide array of material from the bounty killing
of eagles in Alaska to the largest congregation of eagles in the
country at the Chilkat Valley.
