The peregrine falcon, fastest creature on earth, stoops out of the blue to take its wary prey by surprise. Yet, this high drama is rarely witnessed by people. This book offers the unique accounts of a passionate expert who has seen more than 2,000 hunts by wild peregrines. A perceptive and personal narrative aimed at a wide readership, this book portrays the fabled falcon in a variety of landscapes, migrating over the prairies, caring for its young at the nest or wintering on the coast where it meets its nemesis, the mighty bald eagle. Bolt from the Blue is an exuberant celebration of the peregrine falcon's return from local extirpation. There is a thirty-two page colour section bursting with wonderful photographs by Dr Gordon Court. Full of information, this book is a treasure trove of rare observations that need to be shared.
