I enjoyed this book from cover to cover AND from bird to bird. The writing was great and the adventure was fascinating. I especially enjoyed the perspective of a young carefree birder with little backing him but youth and desire heading out on the road to go birding and to break a record. It was nice to see that he also learned something about himself and the birds of America. 1973 was a long time ago and hitchhiking across the nation was all the rage at the time. It's startling to see how much has changed both in society in general and in the birding world. I've read a couple of birding books in the past but this is the one that has grabbed me the most and has gotten me to look further into doing some birding of my own.
