About this book

One man's quest to realise a boyhood dream and break a national record trying to see more than 700 birds in twelve months in Australia.

"[...] The journey chronicled in this book was a pleasure to read about, and in the process I learned a lot about the Australian birding scene, the birds, and the country. This book would be very useful and informative to anyone who will be birding Australia. But even for those who are not it should prove to be a delight."
- Grant McCreary (30-12-2006), read the full review at The Birder's Library
