A Gathering of Birds

An Anthology of the Best Ornithological Prose

Donald Culross Peattie (author)

Celebrated nature writing on the wonders of birds and birding

One in a series of reissued books that have been out of print for decades, by one of the most loved naturalists of all time. A Gathering of Birds is an anthology of selected prose about birds by nineteen writers, among them Hudson, Audubon, and Thoreau, and includes brief biographical information about each. The New York Times called the book “a delightful ‘gathering’ that Mr. Peattie has presented, and his own contributions to the book make it something new and valuable in this field.”
