批評家のレビュー

"Remarkable. If only every endangered species had a guardian angel as impassioned, courageous and pragmatic as Jonathan Slaght." (Isabella Tree, author of Wilding)

"Slaght makes the people, wildlife and landscape of the Russian Far East come alive. I haven't enjoyed a book on remote Russia as much as this since Ian Frazier's Travels in Siberia." (Sophy Roberts, author of The Lost Pianos of Siberia)

"True epic. Powerful, passionate." (Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast

あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.  

Primorye, a remote forested region near to where Russia, China and North Korea meet in a tangle of barbed wire, is the only place where brown bears, tigers and leopards co-exist. It is also home to one of nature's rarest birds, the Blakiston's fish owl. A chance encounter with this huge, strange bird was to change wildlife researcher Jonathan C. Slaght's life beyond measure.  

This is the story of Slaght's quest to safeguard the elusive owl from extinction. During months-long journeys covering thousands of miles, he has pursued it through its forbidding territory. He has spent time with the Russians who struggle on in the harsh conditions of the taiga forest. And he has observed how Russia's logging interests and evolving fortunes present new threats to the owl's survival. Preserving its habitats will secure the forest for future generations, both animal and human - but can this battle be won? 

Exhilarating and clear-sighted, Owls of the Eastern Ice is an impassioned reflection on our relationship with the natural world and on what it means to devote one's career to a single pursuit.

Evocative storytelling of frontline conservation

A fascinating read and insight into frontline conservation in a difficult region with all its discomfort and challenges. Really enjoyed that it was read by the author whose narration of the book was perfect. I’m not a scientist; this is a book for everyone.

A beautiful book

I loved to follow rivers and struggle through snow in search of the maginificent fish owls. This book is both very very well written and - -read. The story unfolds at a perfect pace and every part of the project is so fascinating to follow. I will never forget the fish owls!

An insight into field research and far east Russia

Really enjoyed travelling with the author as his researching into this rare bird develops over many seasons. The book features a rich cast of characters and venues that will have you scouring Google Maps for context, while you learn a little about how field research is conducted, and how much effort goes into protecting our environment. You don't need to be any kind of bird fan to read this, it's simply a well told adventure.

Informative, engaging, pleasant

Personal account of the work and dedication that goes into wild life protection. For me it was also interesting to learn about a remote region, and a species that I had never heard about before, and that at times seemed to strange that a fiction writer couldn't have made it up.
