Our guest this week is authorJack Davis, who joined the show about a year ago to discuss his Pulitzer Prize-winning book about the Gulf of Mexico. Look through the archives for that one, which is a favorite. His new book discusses the successful efforts to restore the bald eagle population to North America, and the critical role Florida played in this project. "The Bald Eagle: The Improbable Journey of America's Bird" is available everywhere.
