Following his successful and authoritative monograph on sparrows in 1988, here, Denis Summers-Smith tells the other, human, side of the tale. His wry descriptions of the tribulations and pleasures of a traveller on four continents, from the Himalayas and Thailand, to Africa and the Americas (with a good few islands in between) are interspersed with observations and speculations on the biology of sparrows in a wide variety of habitats. The author's own photographs and delightful cartoons by Euan Dunn complement the description of this lifelong search. "This book is a jolly good read, the lively text embellished with Euan Dunn's cartoons and with photography of sparrows, people and places. It shows clearly how much fun and satisfaction can be had from serious spare-time work in natural history. It should be an inspiration to us all." --Habitat
