Free, free, free

There is a contest to give away 5 free copies of The Life of the Skies: Birding at the End of Nature by Jonathan Rosen over at 10,000 birds.  If you have ever been asked the question, “Why do you like bird watching,” this may be the book for you.

The rules for the first 2 give-aways are simple.  Promote the contest on your blog or other social network (check!) or submit a photo 500 pixels wide by 250 pixels tall of birds in flight (also check!).   Easy.  If I can do it, you can do it.  Go ahead.  And don’t worry, I never win anything.

    I know this isn’t really related to the topic of Jonathan Rosen’s new book, except that my post is about another new book, which makes the post kind of on-topic.

    People who love birds and who have a strong interest in promoting nature education should like my new book, Birdwatcher: The Life of Roger Tory Peterson, out now from The Lyons Press.

    Peterson played a central role in the expansion of birding not only in the US, but also Europe and East Africa. My book details these things, as well as demonstrating the breadth of his involvement and leadership in nature education and many of the most celebrated conservation causes of the 20th century. From his early 20s onward, Peterson was teaching about all aspects of nature, sometimes informally, sometimes formally, through his writings, lectures, books and work with various conservation organizations.

    Also, the reader learns about Peterson the Man: what motivated him, personal and professional challenges he faced, and his personal impact on many of today’s top birders and conservationists.

    I ended up talking to well over 100 people from around the world to put together this portrait of a complex and driven man. Birders, natural history buffs, and conservationists alike will enjoy the book.

    If anyone has any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at
