The Wedge-tailed Eagle is Australia's largest true eagle and one of our few large predators and scavengers. Like the other large eagles of the world, it has exceptional powers of flight and sight. A master of the sky, it is both revered and reviled. Spirit of the Wedge-tailed Eagle is the culmination of four decades of intimate study of this iconic bird by Australia's leading bird painter, Humphrey Price-Jones. It includes more than 30 magnificent full-colour paintings as well as many of his working drawings. The intricately detailed renditions of each feather and the exquisite depiction of the beaks and feet give an incredible sense of the bird. The book also provides a fascinating insight into the passion that Humphrey Price-Jones has for the species and the process by which he approaches his work. This lavish compilation of illustrations of the Wedge-tailed Eagle from chick to adult is superbly complemented by an engaging and informative text compiled by Dr Penny Olsen, a leading raptor specialist.
"This oversized volume showcases paintings and drawings of Australia's impressive eagle created by Australian wildlife artist Price-Jones. Olsen, an authority on raptors who has written extensively on birds, provides the text."
