Vulture

Original Synopsis

"Vulture has a total of 192 pages which are papers from writer 'Thom van Dooren'. Simply because they are large scavenging birds, vultures are often viewed as harbingers of death. But, as Thom van Dooren shows in this cultural and natural history, that dominant association leaves us with a very one-dimensional understanding of a group of actually rather fascinating and diverse creatures. Vulture offers an enlightening new history of this much-misunderstood bird. Vultures vary in type and size, and while some have a diet mainly of bone, others are actually almost completely vegetarian. Most interesting, despite its notorious association with death, the vulture very rarely, if ever, kills for itself. In different cultural mythologies, vultures play a role in disposing of the dead and officiating over human sacrifices, but they have often been viewed as courageous and noble creatures as well—believed to be indispensable in the containment of waste and disease and even to be world creators and divine mothers. Van Dooren explores these many histories, from some of the earliest-known Neolithic sites in which vultures are thought to have consumed the dead to contemporary efforts to reintroduce the bearded vulture into the Alps. Highlighting the rich diversity of vultures and the many ways in which people have understood and lived with them, Vulture invites a new appreciation and wonder for these incredible birds. 2012-01-01 time of publication of the book, [-Reaktion Books-]"

A Time for Vultures

Original Synopsis

"A Time for Vultures has a total of 284 pages which are papers from writer 'Joe Truhill'. To order the hardback version of this book, please go to http://www.mercury13.com/ A Time for Vultures recounts a seemingly profitable business venture in a South American country which suddenly became dangerous when Joe Truhill and three other Americans were placed in the center of a political power struggle and found themselves in the local keep. Reviewing what looked like a profitable venture, Truhill signed a contract with the Ralph Dial company to airlift tantalite ore from Brazil to the Fan Steel Corporation in Muskogee, Oklahoma. The undertaking suddenly turned sour when a tide of political unrest swept over Brazil. Doing business in some Latin American countries requires paying an appropriate amount of respect to the local authorities. The particular turf in question was under the jurisdiction of General Riograndino Kruel, the head of the federal police, known in Brazil as the DFSP, Districto Federal Seguranca Publica. Riograndino's brother, General Amauri Kruel, had his sights on the presidency. In the one candidate election, Branco, the incumbent president, was not in agreement. He had already picked his successor. The Americans had arrived in Brazil at an opportune moment. They could provide a smokescreen to discredit Branco. General Kruel claimed Branco was handing the country over to the Norteamericano imperialistas, who were supposedly, smuggling radioactive ore out of Brazil. His brother, a man of integrity, he claimed, needed to take over and save the motherland from foreign possession. During months in a filthy Brazilian jail, Truhill engineered various escape attempts. However, escaping by surface transportation was a dangerous undertaking. He had his wife visit him and she returned to the United States with plans for a flying escape attempt. A friend posing as a tourist would fly an airplane to Brazil. The proposed escape route, a 7,000-mile trip, would take them across some of the world's highest and most treacherous mountains, the Andes. Many of those mountains are over 20,000 feet high. The airplane had a service ceiling of 18,000. The attempted escape would have to cross ten foreign countries and land at seven of those for fuel. The five men would attempt to baffle various foreign authorities with two good passports and one fake. A Time for Vultures recounts a journey through Latin American justice under the scope of a political jungle characterized by some Anti-Americanism that made an escape more alarming. 2000-08-01 time of publication of the book, [-AuthorHouse-]"

Vultures

Original Synopsis

"Vultures has a total of 374 pages which are papers from writer 'Michael O'Neal Campbell'. This book reexamines current knowledge on the evolution, ecology, and conservation biology of both New World vultures (Cathartidae) and Old World vultures (Accipitridae) and seeks answers to past and present regional extinctions, colorizations, and conservation questions. Extinct species of both families are examined, as is the disputed evidence for familial similarities and differences currently under review by geneticists and ornithologists. Conservation questions concern the extent to which recent land cover change (deforestation, urbanization, and desertification), wildlife depletions, and pollution have affected scavenging vultures. Such changes are examined as both positive and negative for vultures—a growing body of literature hints at the positive impacts of urban waste, more open forests, forest fires, landscape cultivation, road kills, and shore development, especially with increased attention to bird adaptation and "new" theories of adaptive management in conservation. These are contrasted with the conservation of other raptors and scavengers. Within new trends in conservation, with emphases on animal/human shared co-evolution in intensely habituated spaces, vulture conservation requires important new perspectives that contrast with the needs of other species conservation. 2015-06-26 time of publication of the book, [-CRC Press-]"
