Yet today they are reviled as rats with wings. How did we come to misunderstand one of mankinds most steadfast companions? In Pigeons, Andrew D. Blechman travels across the United States and Europe, deep into the weird and wonderful world of fanaticism. From a major race to a contest with thousands of bizarre and beautiful show birds, and from a live pigeon shoot to the nations oldest and biggest squab farm, he chronicles the birds transformation from beloved friend to feathered outlaw.

Youll never look at a pigeon the same way again.
