Summary

Roger Tory Peterson - the Renaissance man who taught Americans the joy of watching birds - also invented the modern field guide. His 1934 landmark Field Guide to the Birds was the first book designed to go outdoors and help people identify the elements of nature. This self- proclaimed "student of nature" combined spectacular writing with detailed illustrations to ultimately publish many other books, winning every possible award and medal for natural science, ornithology, and conservation. Birdwatcher is a comprehensive, illustrated biography of Roger Tory Peterson - a hero in the conservation world - including interviews with friends, family, and prot?g?s.
