"Reading these uplifting memories in My Life with Cranes, we glimpse the uncertainty and clouds of threat that surrounded this magnificent and imperiled family of birds. Today it is difficult to imagine the world George saw forty years ago in the formative years of the International Crane Foundation. George is a great storyteller, true stories that he himself made happen through faith and perseverance. These qualities kept George going despite numerous setbacks - the disease disaster for the captive flock, the loss of Tex the Whooping Crane to a mob of raccoons, and the unexpected death of George's close friend and conservation partner Ron Sauey. This volume offers rich examples of George's audacity for action. Imagine taking the public bus across Iran accompanied only by a handful of cards bearing simple phrases in Persian, a short time later walking alone through rain and mud among the rice paddies toward a damgah (duck trap) in order to locate Siberian Cranes - only to be intercepted by stern hunters who didn't welcome strangers. Yet just at that moment, you might be able to guess whose loud calls rose from behind the line of trees and waterfowl traps. But there is an even more satisfying question - who else but George would walk into such a situation? This volume gives instance after instance of leaps of faith, a tireless search for meaningful action, and the passionate readiness to seize opportunity" -- taken from the foreword.

"In 1969, an eager young Canadian named George Archibald, studying at Cornell University, came to talk to me about his hopes and dreams concerning cranes. Most of the fifteen species were threatened and George intended to devote himself to them. He had big plans. Since that time, George Archibald has given his life to his dreams, successfully, in fact, marvelously.

George founded the International Crane Foundation, developed highly sophisticated propagation techniques and traveled all over the world successfully spreading the save-the-cranes gospel. He has tied the effort to local farming, to specialized cultures, and to distant religions, even to the Korean De-militarized Zone. In short, he has crated one of the most effective and affecting international conservation programs anywhere. George not only lives and breathes cranes, he dances with them!" .... by William Conway, Senior Conservationist, Wildlife Conservation Society
