Something that I have worked on for several years. Still not done, but I have no need to make any money on it (so its free to EVO). So do we want to see it in the EVO Wiki in its almost finished form? Of course, it can also be updated and modified as more information becomes available. I have only put the cover in the Wiki so far.

I have stumbled into this before on the internet. you did a great job on what's there so far. I don't know what would be the better option though. now this chapter that I found http://www.amceaglenest.com/images/Eaglebook/18bookrescuingeagles.pdf would maybe be a good one to put in the wiki, as it would give more of a description of what to look for when buying a eagle.

That chapter remains unfinished. Most of the preceding ones are complete or near completion.

Several views but no comments about whether folks want it in the Wiki or not. The reason I ask, is because it does involve quite a bit of time to include it.

What's in the book? Do you have a table of contents? I, for one, would love to see it.

from the bits of it I seen, there is a lot of historical information in it. I don't know what the plan was originally, and I cant find much for traces on the idea of the book.

What if we made like a book.amcevolution.com and uploaded the book to scribd.com, and just embedded that into the book.amcevolution.com? scribd.com I think is a site you can upload a pdf or word document, and they give you a youtube like player to read the book in. It seems separate from the wiki to me, it's own special production.
