The bald eagle has been a silent witness to American history for thousands of years. Eagles watched the arrival of the first humans, the beginnings of a democracy, expansion of the nation from coast to coast, and engagement in civil and foreign wars. As the national emblem and a symbol of peace and freedom, the eagle's own struggle against extinction counterpoints the story of this country's growth and development through the centuries. Author C.H. Colman interlaces the bald eagle's struggle against extinction with the history of our nation through the centuries.
