This extraordinary book takes us into the complex world of ravens. Over the course of four seasons in the Rocky Mountains, we follow the adventures of Colin, a young raven who arrives unexpectedly with no memory of his past to join the Raven's End flock at Yamnuska, east of Banff. He learns about the beautiful and dangerous landscape that is their home and participates in the daily ritual of morning "Flaps", when the flock exchanges news about food sources, weather, births, and deaths.
