Originally published in 1979, this classic is now available in paperback. A tribute from `King Penguin', in words and pictures, to his favourite family of birds. Drawing on a lifetime of personal experience with these remarkable creatures, Roger Tory Peterson captures the essence of penguins, both species and individuals, from the giant emperor to the little blue, ranging from the coldest ice fields of Antarctica to semitropical shores.
