How to order

Due to changing conditions I no longer sell books by mail order directly. Instead both books and e books can all now be obtained via my Amazon author page https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pete-Jennings/e/B0034OPQP8

I will continue to carry small quantities of books for sale with me to live events where I am giving talks.

 

A CACOPHONY OF CORVIDS: the mythology, facts, behaviour and folklore of ravens, crows, magpies, rooks and their relatives.

(Gruff, 2017)

Birds that show empathy, make and use tools, problem solve and recognise faces: no wonder corvids are at the heart of many myths and folk tales.

From their role in keeping Britain safe at the Tower of London to the companions of the Viking god Odin; this unique illustrated look at the enigmatic world of ravens, crows, magpies, rooks and their cousins should give you food for thought, and a new understanding of what makes them the most special of birds.
