Birding Without Borders: An Obsession, A Quest, and the Biggest Year in the World - Noah Strycker
'Astonishing ... If by chance you can't meet these 6,042 species yourself, this book is a close second. Strycker is the perfect companion - smart, thoughtful, intrepid, and at times, very very funny. I loved the birds and the people he met and was sorry when his journey was over.' Jennifer Ackerman, author of The Genius of Birds
Noah Strycker set himself a goal: to become the first person to see half the world's 10,000 species of bird in one year.
With an itinerary covering 41 countries, spanning all seven continents, and armed with a backpack, binoculars and a series of one-way tickets, he sets out on the greatest adventure in the birding world. Along the way he meets a colourful cast of fellow birders - and discovers a world of blood-sucking leeches, chronic sleep deprivation, floods, war zones, ecologic devastation and conservation triumphs. Vivid, charming and full of wonder, Birding Without Borders is a celebration of passion, exploration and the birders' ethos that, if you keep your eyes and mind open, you never know what you might see.
