Birds, Seeking the Freedom of the Sky
By Peter Fraser
This book offers a clear differentiation between the different bird species. If bird remedies are relatively well known, the differences between the species have been difficult to establish. The book is well organised, following the scientific classification of order, family, genus, and species, which makes it easy to work with. Individual remedies are examined, drawing out their individual important aspects, enabling us to differentiate between the subtle differences of each bird remedy. In total, forty remedies are explored, from the familiar Falco peregrinus to the less known Pharomachrus mocinno. One down side to this otherwise interesting book is the lack of accompanying cases, which would have been welcome to complement the remedy pictures.
"Peter brings a fine focus that penetrates the outer veils to reveal the simpler and truer nature of things. This leads to brevity of expression as well as concentration of the material: an aqua vita from which we may sip and understand. The information given is really useful in practice, helping me to recognise similima. I have been eagerly awaiting this book." Misha Norland
