This dazzling volume of 150 illustrations, 100 in color, celebrates Roger Tory Peterson's career in all the media in which he worked-writing, painting, drawing and photography. Zinsser (On Writing Well) contributes a biographical sketch and an interview with the 85-year-old artist, who notes that he needs another 30 years to complete his projects. Leo, a columnist for U.S. News & World Report, has collected encomiums from Peterson's friends and associates. With access to Peterson's archives, Hoglund, bird-watcher and art director of Money magazine, has assembled an impressive display of the artist's works, among them many previously unpublished images. A visual treat for birders. Author tour. (Dec.)
