Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Riotously funny, utterly enthralling…Dempseys a hoot.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

It began innocently enough, when two eccentric guests at L uke Dempseys weekend home pointed out a small bird flitting through his garden. Dempsey, entranced, found himself falling head over heels. Before he knew it, he and his friends were off on an epic birding journey down the backroads of America, in search of the countrys rarest and most beautiful birds. A Supremely Bad Idea is the hilarious story of their trip—what WildBird magazine calls “as close as we have to Bill Brysons A Walk in the Woods.”

Synopsis:

Dempsey presents this hilarious and informative chronicle of three mad birders and their travels across America in search of its rarest birds. 8-page color insert.
