Bateman's stories are irresistible whether he is coming upon the extremely rare Siberian rubythroat while looking for Siberian cranes in a former duck hunting preserve southeast of Delhi or watching a Secretary bird in Africa attacking its dinner of snake. Bateman's message is always a plea for the preservation of species and the environment, crucial since it is predicted that in the next hundred years we will lose 1200 species of birds, or one in eight.
Given the beauty of Bateman's work, the enormous popularity of bird watching and nature travel, this should be one of the most sought after nature books of the year.
