Roger Tory Peterson: Penguins


De achterflap:

Roger Tory Peterson (1908-1996) was the greatest naturalist of the twentieth century. He was also known as "King Penguin", and Penguins is his tribute to his favorite family of birds. Drawing on a lifetime of personal experience with these remarkable creatures, he captures the essence of species and individuals, from the giant emperor penguin to the tiny blue penguin, ranging from the coldest ice fields of Antarctica to semitropical shores. His engaging prose,splendid photographs, and spirited drawings are the armchair equivalent of an expedition to these remote places with the most knowledgeable and entertaining guide possible.
