Stokes Field Guide to Birds: Eastern Region

Stokes Field Guide to Birds: Eastern Region
de Donald Stokes, Lillian Stokes(Ed. Little, Brown and Company) Isbn : 0316818097
17.09 €
Together these new field guides cover the continental United States (except western Alaska) and Canada; the 100th meridian is the dividing line between regions. In each volume, the taxonomically arranged species accounts (mostly one per page; occasionally two similar species are combined) include common and scientific names; one to three color photos; terse comments on identifying features, feeding, nesting, other behavior, habitat, voice, and population trends; and a range map. Special "learning pages" precede some difficult groups like gulls and sparrows. Most species of regular occurrence in the region are included; a few extremely local rarities are omitted. The text is clearly written, accurate, and up-to-date; the 1995 AOU (American Ornithologists' Union) Checklist changes are includ...

For Beauty of the Earth: Birding, Opera and Other Journeys

For Beauty of the Earth: Birding, Opera and Other Journeys
de Thomas Urquhart(Ed. Shoemaker Hoard, Div of Avalon Publishing Group ) Isbn : 1593760175
24.70 €
Today, when most personal memoirs involve misery and dysfunction, it is exhilarating to encounter a life of modesty, happiness, and stability. Often when thinking of nature writers and naturalists, the image of a rough-hewn rural, rugged outdoor type wrestled into epiphany by the arms of Mother Nature comes to mind. Thomas Urquhart found a different path. He combined a classical education with a lifelong passion for opera, literature and art, but from his earliest days he was a devoted amateur naturalist. For the Beauty of the Earth begins with the lives of Urquhart's ancestors, among them his grandmother,«a patron saint of lost causes»who cherished her signed photo of Robert E. Lee and his great aunt Catharine, arrested while protesting what she considered the judicial murder of Sacco and...

Today, when most personal memoirs involve misery and dysfunction, it is exhilarating to encounter a life of modesty, happiness, and immeasurable stability. Often when we think of nature writers and naturalists, we think of the rough-hewn rural, rugged, outdoor type wrestled into epiphany by the arms of Mother Nature. Thomas Urquhart found a different path. He combined a classical education with a lifelong passion for opera, literature, and art. And from his earliest days he is a devoted, devotedly amateur naturalist. In For the Beauty of the Earth Urquhart begins with the lives of his ancestors, among them his grandmother, "a patron saint of lost causes" who cherished her signed photo of Robert E. Lee, his great aunt Catharine, arrested along with Edna St. Vincent Millay and Marianne Moore...

To human eyes, the remote Aleutian Islands of Alaska look barren and rocky. The waters seem frigid, the high, sweeping winds intolerable, and the seas rolling.

Join Sophie Webb on a voyage in search of seabirds. Just as she did with her award-winning My Season with Penguins, she once again inspires our curiosity. As she watches...

Audubon: Life and Art in the American Wilderness

Audubon: Life and Art in the American Wilderness
de Shirley Streshinsky(Ed. University of Georgia Press) Isbn : 0820320056
17.06 €
To escape conscription into the French Army, John James Audubon (1785-1851) fled to Philadelphia in 1803. There he married Lucy Bakewell, daughter of a large, prosperous Quaker family. As they moved West to seek their fortune, Audubon was entranced by the wilderness; in 1820 he started to implement his plan of depicting every indigenous bird on canvas. Streshinsky ( The Shores of Paradise ) has written a scintillating biography, a richly detailed story of romance, separation and struggle. After a succession of business failures, the Audubons drifted to New Orleans and Natchez, Miss., where he earned money drawing portraits and Lucy taught school to plantation families. In 1826 Audubon, carrying letters of introduction, took his portfolio abroad and established himself in England and on the...
