Hour 2: How did feathers evolve and why are they so fascinating and valuable to humans? We’ll talk this hour with conservation biologist Thor Hanson, author of “Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle” (Basic Books, 2011).
This was most interesting to me because I am the great aunt of Thor’s wife Eliza. I have never met him because Friday Harbor is a long way from Fort Worth. My sister and her husband live on Waldron which is a remote island in the San Juans in north west Washington and I was alerted to Thor’s book Feathers by them. It was great to hear Chris and Thor ‘s conversation.
