Summary
From the merlin to the golden eagle, the goshawk to the honey buzzard, James Macdonald Lockharts stunning debut is a quest of beak, talon, wing, and sky. On its surface, Raptor is a journey across the British Isles in search of fifteen species of birds of prey, but as Lockhart seeks out these elusive predators, his quest becomes so much more: an incomparably elegant elegy to the beauty of the British landscape and, through the birds, a journey toward understanding an awesome power at the heart of the natural world -- a power that is majestic and frightening in its strength, but also fragile
