The Wake of Crows

The Wake of Crows: Living and Dying in Shared Worlds, Columbia University Press: New York, 2019

I have recently completed work on the full first draft of this new book. The table of contents is below. The book is comprised of five chapters, each focused on human/crow relationships in a particular part of the world. The chapters are separated by short vignettes that draw on ethological literatures to explore some of the fascinating ways in which crows understand and inhabit their worlds.

Please get in touch with any questions.
