Malcolm Schuyl, a biologist and wildlife photographer with a passion for swans, presents a very accessible introduction to their biology, life-cycle and behaviour, their domestication and their significance in cultural life, along with a remarkable collection of photographs taken over many years of observing these beautiful birds. The book concentrates on the Mute, or Common, Swan, and its special place in folk traditions and in literature and art, from Aesop to the band T. Rex.
