All About a Miracle

by Dean S on Dec 6, 2012

Feathers are miracles of structure and function, according to Hanson's careful and insightful examination. This is a well-researched book with references to science, history, evolution, and culture. It is a good book for the general reader with no formal training in biology or ornithology, and makes the subject appealing and exciting.
