"One photograph that's worth the price of Michael Forsberg's new book is a dramatically lit image of a single whooping crane, standing out stark against the whirring gray flock of sandhills. . . . The author's photographs and text convey and amazing range of experience, from the exuberance of the elaborate mating dance to the poignance of an individual crane's death."--Charles J./I>--Charles J. Lohrmann "Texas Reader "
"Michael Forsberg is a gifted photographer. I opened this book for a quick look, saw the first photograph, a stunning full-page photo of a dancing Sandhill crane leaping for the sky, and did not put the book down until I had looked at everyone one of its 154 photographs. . . . I found this book easy to read and enjoyable. It is not a technical study, but it left me with a better understanding of the Sandhill crane."--Dale G./I>--Dale G. Hjertaas "Great Plains Research "
"Shot from the Arctic tundra to suburban Florida, the intimate, at times stunning, photographs of these striking gray birds present a rich natural history of one of the world's oldest avian species."--Audubon--Audubon
"A fine tribute marries natural history and visual display, inviting audiences from natural history students to casual readers to partake."--Bookwatch--Bookwatch
"His sandhill cranes dance and huddle, soar in masses and wander in pairs. They are vulnerable balls of fuzz and fierce defenders of forage. Most are full of health and grace. One is motionless--dead, after flying into a powerline."--Capital Times--Capital Times
"Accompanied by easy-to-read stories describing the life of the sandhill crane, their habitats and conservation/protection efforts, this is a book you can read, savor and enjoy again and again. On Ancient Wings: The Sandhill Cranes of North America is a visual delight and a book I can highly recommend to nature lovers, bird-watchers, wildlife photographers and those who care about the environment."--Great American Landscape--Great American Landscape
