This is a fantastic work of a professional and enthusiast of the raven. Detailed facts on distribution, behaviour and history of Corvus Corax and very readable at that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy reproduction 2 July 2010
By irehound - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I have the hard copy version of this "Ravens" by Ratcliffe, the electronic reproduction is shoddy at best. Text is readable but the illustrations, photos and cover available for review in the sample copy are shoddy at best. Don't buy it, I won't unless the electronic version can match the original.
