Around the World With 1000 Birds
Author: Russell Boyman
Following one man’s extraordinary answer to his midlife crisis, this engaging story chronicles the worldwide pursuit of an uncommon goal. Documenting the author’s journey of finding 1,000 birds in their natural habitats and walking in the landscapes of every wildlife documentary he had ever watched, this narrative travels from the Amazon jungle and the African Savannah to the glaciers of New Zealand, savoring the splendors of the natural world. Along the way, all of his quirky adventures are recorded—investigating the strange noises coming from the chalet next door deep in the Indian jungle, finding an antelope in his shower, and even flying halfway across the world for a weekend with one very special bird. Providing a fascinating insight into the calming influence and inspiration that nature provides, this voyage of emotions and experiences shows how one man gave up sweaty commuter trains and a stressful job to make his dream come true.
