With some fish eagles we had to approach in stealth mode when setting the trap,
for fear of frightening them away, but Cut Off was an extraordinarily nosey eagle,
so I knew he'd be curious about our activities this morning. There was no sign of ...

Eagles have fascinated humans for millennia. For some, the glimpse of a distant eagle instantly becomes a treasured lifelong memory. Others may never encounter a wild eagle in their lifetime. This book was written by people who have dedicated years to the study of eagles, to provide an insider's view for all readers, but especially those who have never been up close and personal with these magnificent yet often misunderstood creatures. In their stories, twenty-nine leading eagle researchers share their remarkable field experiences, providing personal narratives that don't feature in their scientific publications. They tell of their fear at being stalked by grizzly bears, their surprise at being followed by the secret police, their embarrassment when accidentally firing mortar rockets over a school gymnasium, and their sense of awe at tracking eagles via satellite. The reader experiences the cultural shock of being guest of honor at a circumcision ceremony, the absurdity of sharing an aquatic car with the Khmer Rouge, and the sense of foreboding at being press-ganged into a frenzied tribal death march through the jungle. The Eagle Watchers covers twenty-four species on six continents, from well known (bald eagle; golden eagle), to obscure (black-and-chestnut eagle; New Guinea harpy eagle), and from common (African fish eagle) to critically endangered (Philippine eagle; Madagascar fish eagle). The diverse experiences vividly described in this book reveal the passion, dedication, and sense of adventure shared by those who study these majestic birds and strive for their conservation. Featuring stunning color photographs of the eagles, information on raptor conservation, a global list of all eagle species with ranges and conservation status, and a color map of the sites visited in the book, The Eagle Watchers will appeal to birders, conservationists, and adventure travelers alike. To further support the conservation programs described in this book, all royalties are being donated to two leading nonprofit organizations for raptor conservation training and fieldwork: Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Intern Program and the National Birds of Prey Trust.

Appropriately, the traditional symbol of the Gospel of John is an eagle. The
prehistory of the idea goes back to the living creatures that were part of Ezekiel's
vision of God. Each of these had four faces (Ezek 1:10), of a man, a lion, an ox,
and an ...

The Gospel of John was long assumed to be the work of an eyewitness, usually identified as John, son of Zebedee. More recently, many have judged it the unhistorical product of a "Johannine community." Reconsideration by Richard Bauckham has suggested that the author was a Jerusalem disciple who housed the "Last Supper." This book explores the possibility that he was present at most of the events he described. It contends that John's Gospel reveals the real Jesus and that the Evangelist was one of the most perceptive Christian writers of all time. The Gospel strongly advocates belief that Jesus was uniquely related to God, and hence uniquely authoritative, thus providing an urgent evangelical thrust to this book.

Illegal Odyssey 200 Years of Kentucky Moonshine Blending the exploits of Kentucky moonshiners and the revenue agents who attempted to destroy their illegal distilleries contributed to a volatile mixture of adversarial relationships, stubborn independence, admiration, humor and a dash of pathos. For 200 years, moonshiners persevered and outlasted the federal government's levying an excise tax on their whiskey, which they didn't pay; revenue agents, even the 7th Calvary, on the prowl for signs of their illegal distilling; politicians holding them on a short leash; wars in America and abroad; Prohibition, which gave them their boom and glory days; an association with organized crime, but they weren't equipped to handle the changing patterns of substance abuse that occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. When forced to compete with a spiney-looking, green plant, marijuana, moonshiners evaporated like the alcohol in their whiskey as it poured from the flake stand into the catch can before they could get it canned down. The Kentucky moonshiner, and the revenue agents who tracked them through the hills and hollows, provided colorful stories for Illegal Odyssey.
