In this book one of the leading experts on the birds of New Guinea shares some of his experiences on this fascinating island with the readers.
Similarly to Flannery's 'Throwin Way Leg', most of the field trips described took place in Papua New Guinea, where highlands, lowlands and off-shore islands were all visited.
In one chapter, the author ventures across the border to Indonesian West Papua, where he visited the central highlands.
Not just a mere personal account, the text is full of information about the ecology and fauna (especially birdlife) of this unique land.
I have had the fortune to be able to visit New Guinea repeatedly myself, but reading this book made me want to return there ASAP!
