The Swan, A Natural History
Stunning photographs illustrate this new natural history of the swan, this much-loved creature of beauty and grace. Professional photographer Malcolm Schuyl has studied the swan for decades, observing, researching and photographing it throughout its life-cycle.
His lively and inspirational book covers the swan in all its stages: natural history and behaviour (bathing, preening, moulting, sleeping); breeding and courtship (mating, nesting, incubation, hatching); raising their young; swan domestication and uses throughout history; the swan in literature, myth, music, superstition, and swan conservation and their future. This is a book to delight and educate.
