Eagle Days was first published in 1973; it was soon out of print and subsequently became a collector’s item. This reprint stems from popular demand. It is published in its original form, and in the interim Rhodesia has become Zimbabwe. However, the freshness and enthusiasm of the original text has been left unchanged, and Peter Steyn’s purpose in communicating his enjoyment of eagles to others remains. The authoritative yet readable text tells of the poetry of eagles – in the author’s words ‘to study a creature as magnificent as an eagle at close quarters is something which has to be experienced to be appreciated.’ The chapter on the little known African snake eagles is a particular highlight. Numerous full colour and black and white illustrations, book has glossary, bibliography, scientific names and index.
