nevermore C. C. Selavy Very disappointing. I know highschoolers who could have written a better book. If you want to waste time reading what you already know, this pamphlet is for you. Our highly intelligent, feathered neighbors deserve better.. "THE RAVEN" according to Joseph R. Calamia. The Raven Soaring Through History Legend &Lore by Lynn Hassler is a unique guide and companion for those interested in: "everything you always wanted to know about the Raven, but were afraid to ask."This extremely informative booklet covers not just the biological and species aspect of this great bird, butits mythology, symbolism, and place in man's conscience and sub-conscience worlds.The Raven is basically, the equivalent of man's duel-nature. The bird is both Good and Bad depending. Great book Mariyn I was looking for information on ravens in history and different cultures. This book had what I was looking for.
Ravens have sparked the interest and imagination of mankind for centuries. Skillfully mixing storytelling with science, birder and author Lynn Hassler unravels the mysteries of the legendary raven in this very engaging book.. Mentioned in the Bible, they also figure in the art, literature, and folklore of many different cultures, sometimes as tricksters or cheaters, sometimes as symbols of danger, death, and wisdom
