The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
Birders of a feather: authors and experts, personalities, and poets edited by Harvey Tyson.
A score of well-known South Africans take you on journeys that show you ways to increase your interests and enhance your life. They show you how their hobby—their passion—can be experienced inside your garden gate, or in the furthest corners of the earth. They show you why the exploding sport of birdwatching puts you back in constant touch with nature, and with every interest involving the unspoilt outdoors. They show you how, through your awareness of birds—and by simply having fun—you can help protect your environment.
