Overview

Roger Tory Peterson’s unique perspective on birding comes to life in these highly personal narratives. Here he relates his adventures during a lifetime of birding and traveling the world to observe and record nature. Though Peterson was widely known for his illustrations, this collection reminds us to reconsider his accomplishments as a photographer, for Peterson was nearly as passionate about photography as he was about painting. The essays and photographs included here were carefully selected by Bill Thompson III, the editor of Bird Watcher’s Digest, which ran the column “All Things Reconsidered” during the last twelve years of Peterson’s life.

Republishing Peterson's Bird Watcher's Digest columns was a wonderful way to pay tribute to him. In these pages he comes off as unpretentious, wry, and interested in other people and the world around him. We learn about his life and art through these short articles that are illustrated with his photos, sketches and paintings. I recommend Wild America, the book he co-authored with British ornithologist James Fisher. It is a wonderful account of a bird-watching tour they took around North America in the Fifties.
