Description
In this "riotously funny, utterly enthralling" (Minneapolis Star Tribune) book, Luke Dempsey chronicles a disastrous adventure that began innocently enough, when two eccentric guests at his weekend home pointed out a small bird flitting through the garden. Dempsey, entranced, found himself falling head over heels for birds, and almost before he knew it, this displaced Brit and his new friends were off on a journey down the back roads of America, in search of the country's rarest and most beautiful specimens. His account of his descent from general respectability into birding mania is "as close as we have to Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods" (WildBird magazine).
