    Spending Time with RTP

    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.
