There's less information here on crows than a title like "Crow Planet" might lead you to believe. The focus is much more on how to exist in the natural world even living within the concrete jungle as many of us now do. (more)

this book is more about Munroe than crows

I don't see many crows where I live, but this book has motivated me to be more observant about nature in general.

Haupt shares her struggles and joys along with her observations about crows.

I disagree with bbermingham's description of the narration as "the smug self-satisfied tone of an uptight Seattleite". This sounds like a reader with an unreasonable chip on his/her shoulder. By all means read "Gift of the Crow" ...but it is a another book. Read both!

Read "Gift of the Crow" by Marzluff instead. This book is mostly an autobiography of Haupt and unfortunately her narration has the smug self-satisfied tone of an uptight Seattleite. She uses some of Marzluff's research in the text, go straight to the source instead.
