The Magic & Mystery of Birds by Noah Strycker

The Magic & Mystery of Birds by Noah Strycker

The Magic and Mystery of Birds
by Noah Strycker

Why do birds do what they do, and how do they offer a glimpse into the nature of humanity? From the life-long relationships of the albatross, the remarkable memory of the nutcracker and other avian mysteries Noah Strycker illuminates the startlingly intimate coexistence of birds and humans.

Noah Strycker has spent the last decade studying bird behaviour in some of the world’s remotest places – from a penguin colony in Antarctica, the Falkland Islands, the Australian outback, the Galápagos Islands – and has observed almost 2,500 species of birds. Noah has come to understand that birds are lively, unpredictable individuals loaded with personality and, if you look closely enough, birds have human counterparts. From the homing instinct of pigeons (and the mystery of the pigeon equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle in eastern England), testing the turkey vulture’s sense of smell with a deer carcass to the reason behind penguin’s fear of water and lack of fear of humans, even the courtship rituals of Australia’s winged Casanova, the bowerbird, by studying birds, we ultimately learn about ourselves. As we learn about birds, we gain insights into memory, relationships, game theory and the nature of intelligence itself.

Drawing on cutting-edge scientific research, along with his personal experience and colourful anecdotes, The Magic and Mystery of Birds is a thoughtful and engaging look at how the life of birds connects with humanity. Perfect for any bird fans in your family!

Easter Island by Thor Heyerdahl

Easter Island by Thor Heyerdahl

Easter Island: The Mystery Solved
by Thor Heyerdahl

Easter Island is one of the most remote places in the world and Thor Heyerdahl spent much of his life investigating the mystery of Easter Island’s ancient giant statues. How were they made, how were they moved and what was the origin of the native legend that the statues ‘walked’?

Heyerdahl visited Easter Island, in 1955 and 1956 as he tried to determine if the island had been originally colonised by people who sailed from South America across 2,000 miles of ocean. Returning to the island over thirty years later Heyerdahl investigated the ruins of the island’s unique statues, monolithic human figures carved from rock, and experimented with techniques that could have allowed a pre-industrial culture to create and move such enormous figures.

The ideal gift for the traveller in your family.
