New in HOORC’s Library: Birds of Heaven
In The Birds of Heaven, Peter Matthiessen tells the story of his world travels in search of the fifteen species of cranes. One chapter is devoted to southern Africa, the only place, he points out, where all three of the presently recognized genera of cranes occur together. The book is illustrated with lovely colour plates by Robert Bateman. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
