In this book Roodbergen describes the life of the lapwing on the basis of one year cycle. A pasture without lapwings seemed unthinkable until recently. But the decline of nature has direct consequences for the habitat of the lapwing. The content of this book is divided into three major parts after the introduction. The first part describes the life of the lapwing in all its aspects. The second and third part focus on the 'utilization' and the protection of this meadow bird. In the province of Friesland, these two are intertwined in such a way that the whole is experienced as part of the intangible cultural heritage. In 'De kievit' Roodbergen explains the best way to protect this beautiful bird and to preserve it in the Dutch landscape.
