I'm writing to let everyone know about my new biography, Birdwatcher: the Life of Roger Tory Peterson (Lyons Press, 2008).
As you may know, 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, and demonstrates 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.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing everyone on this forum regularly!
