Peterborough - Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Davis discusses his new book on the Bald Eagle

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Gulfa sweeping cultural and natural history of the bald eagle in America, The Bald Eagle: The Improbable Journey Of America's Bird. Jack Davis is a professor of environmental history at the University of Florida. He lives in Florida but also visits New Hampshire and we are excited to be able to offer you this opportunity to meet Professor Davis and hear him discuss this magnificent bird that is known to nest in our area. 


"Davis, the Pulitzer-winning author of The Gulf, makes clear in his rollicking, poetic, wise new book that cultural and political history are an integral part of this natural history, not to be omitted if we want to tell the whole story.... Along with the famous humans, Davis never neglects the birds themselves.... Davis shines at most everything in this exuberantly expansive book, but especially at highlighting individual birds like the translocated ones making their way in the world. With eagle numbers now estimated at levels they were before 'America became America, ' their comeback is astonishing".--Vicki Constantine Croke "New York Times Book Review"
