What People are Saying About This

Kenn Kaufman

"Victor Emanuel is a remarkable man who found his mentors in birding and went on to become a leader in that community for the past fifty years. In One More Warbler, Victor shares his wide-ranging adventures across the globe, including the story of his enormously influential ecotourism company, and the reasons why he become a mentor himself to whole generations of young ornithologists. It’s a fascinating read."

John Fitzpatrick

"Long before anyone used the word ‘ecotourism,’ Victor Emanuel had devoted his life to the mission of sharing with others his passion for birds and nature. His literary sophistication, boundless curiosity, commitment to mentoring, and raw, childlike exuberance have earned him friendships with writers, filmmakers, politicians, and educators the world over. This book is classic Victor: a tapestry of anecdotes, adventures, philosophical musings, and tributes to people, all woven together by glowing words of admiration for the rich diversity of birds that grace our lives, and define his."

Laura Bush

"Birding with Victor Emanuel will change the way you see the natural world. It’s an experience everyone should have."
