Neighbors to the Birds: A History of Birdwatching in America

Neighbors to the Birds: A History of Birdwatching in America
de F. Gibbons(Ed. WW Norton Co) Isbn : 039302606X
15.83 €
This literate and detailed yet popular account by historians documents Americans' interest in wild birds. Strom is author of Birdwatching with American Women (LJ 4/1/86). In this book, the two authors stress historical development, with chapters on the work of early colonial naturalists, as well as on Audubon, Muir, etc. Other chapters deal with artists, equipment, conservation movements, literature, women, and the sport today. The authors excel when they bring their historians' approach into play; they are less cogent and somewhat out of touch when covering contemporary themes.

Armistead, Thomas Jefferson Univ. Li...
