About this book

One of the most famous wildlife travelogues of the 20th century, Wild America was first published in 1956 (by Collins in the UK and Houghton Mifflin in the US).

For those too young to remember, Peterson was the foremost American ornithologist and bird artist of the day (inventing the modern bird field guide, amongst other things). James Fisher was a leading authority on seabirds, a profilic writer and broadcaster, and the editor of the New Naturalist series. Together they undertook a whirlwind, 100-day tour of America's finest wildlife sites, recording all that they saw via diaries and sketches. A classic work and – for 21st century readers – a poignant reminder of how much American wildlife has been lost or reduced in the last 35 years.
