Review: This biographical picture of Roger Tory Peterson introduces the reader to birding through the eyes of a world-renowned ornithologist and naturalist. The brilliant illustrations contribute much to the life story of Mr. Peterson, as we learn of his young aspirations, his detailed written descriptions, the support from his family, his studies over the globe, and his outstanding contributions, most of them for the birds.
