Sheikh's Last Stoop & Other Avian Tales
by Pushpa Kurup
A peregrine falcon in Ras al Khaimah, a back swan in New Zealand, an ostrich, a crow and a few other birds share with us their fascinating tales of adventure. From their evolution to their possible extinction, they trace their past, describe their present and dream of their future. Their special relationship with homo sapiens forms the core of each tale.
