This classic Reaktion title, now available in B-format, is a survey of crows, ravens, magpies, and their relatives in myth, literature, and life. It ranges from the raven sent out by Noah to the corvid deities of the Eskimo, to Taoist legends, Victorian novels, and contemporary films. It will be of interest to anyone who has ever been intrigued, puzzled, annoyed, or charmed by these wonderfully intelligent birds.
