Marluff and Angell take a look into how human and crow culture (I love the idea of crow culture) influence one another, and how crows in human-inhabited ways may be a sign of poor ecological environments for other birds.

It looks at past stories of ravens and crows in our stories, how we encourage and/or discourage crows and ravens, and crow inter-generational memory.

I recommend it if you have even a passing interest in the world right outside your door.
