All Things Reconsidered: My Birding Adventures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In these highly personal narratives, which originally appeared in "Bird Watchers Digest," Peterson recounts his adventures during a lifetime of birding and traveling the world to observe and record nature.

Synopsis:

Roger Tory Peterson& #39; s unique perspective on birding comes to life in this collection of columns. In these highly personal narratives, he recounts his adventures during a lifetime of birding and traveling the world to observe and record nature. From the incident when his boat capsized in freezing water off the coast of Maine while the octogenarian was filming a documentary, to his own experiences searching for the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, Peterson& #39; s sense of adventure and curiosity cannot be extinguished. The essays and photographs included here were carefully selected by Bill Thompson III, the editor of Bird Watcher& #39; s Digest, in which the columns originally appeared.

Synopsis:

Roger Tory Petersons unique perspective on birding comes to life in these highly personal narratives. Here he relates his adventures during a lifetime of birding and traveling the world to observe and record nature. Though Peterson was widely known for his illustrations, this collection reminds us to reconsider his accomplishments as a photographer, for Peterson was nearly as passionate about photography as he was about painting. The essays and photographs included here were carefully selected by Bill Thompson III, the editor of Bird Watchers Digest, which ran the column “All Things Reconsidered” during the last twelve years of Petersons life.
