About this book

The author's monograph on the genus Passer was highly praised for its coverage and content. This new work tells the other, human, story of his work. In it, the author describes his work on sparrows that lead up to the monograph, including detailed and at times amusing descriptions of his travels in four continents. Illustrated with the author's own photographs, and cartoons by Euan Dunn, this is an informative insight into one man's lifelong work.

Digital reprint of a book originally published in 1992.
