To See Every Bird on Earth: A Father, a Son, and a Lifetime Obsession. Dan Koeppel. 2005. Penguin Books. Reviewed by Andy White.
While not as politically or philosophically deep as many on this shelf, and not devoted to wilderness per se, this book gives an intriguing look at one endeavor often pursued in the wilds. Along with exploration of family and father/son relationships, Dan Koeppel follows his father’s quest to see… well, a lot of birds. By book’s end he has tallied more than seven of the currently classified ten thousand plus species.
