My third time reading this. Fun, light, well-written but it didn't really excite me this time.

But I did learn more about the history of the American Birding Association and how print media played a huge role in expanding the Big Year/hyper-listing phenomenon.

Kenn successfully completes an item many experienced birders have high on their bucket lists and he does it on his own hitchhiking as a teenager with a miniscule budget. Nostalgic and inspiring and fun to read--a sure bet for any twitcher.

At first, I wasn't too excited about the illustrations, they seemed a bit crude and few in number. But the species descriptions are excellent. Also, an excellent selection of species on each page of plates, each with a catchy heading.
