Description
By day, the Kearton brothers worked at respectable jobs in London, but in their free time they crept through brambles and briars, trudged through swamps, hid in hollow trees, and climbed cliffs. Most peculiarly, they hid inside the belly of an artificial ox. Why? To photograph birds, and in 1895, to publish the first nature book entirely illustrated with photographs. Rebecca Bond's book for readers 4 to 8 concludes with two pages of photos by and of the dauntless brothers—including a snapshot of the ox—along with a postscript about their later lives.

"[Rebecca] Bond’s graceful watercolors depict the brothers as they piece together their disguises and gain recognition for their innovative approach to photography. The brothers’ dedication and ingenuity are especially resonant, and their elaborate costumes will amuse but also inspire."—Publishers Weekly
