Paul Kerlinger served as the director of the New Jersey Audubon Society's Cape May Bird Observatory for seven years and is now an environmental consultant.
Tom Vezo is an award-winning wildlife photographer who travels the world to capture images of animals in their natural environments. His photos have appeared in Audubon, Bird Watcher's Digest, Birder's World, National Geographic, National Wildlife, Outdoor Photographer, Sierra, and WildBird as well as in numerous calendars and advertisements. Tom lives in Green Valley, Arizona, with his wife, Dorothy.
Bird photographer Vezo's superb shots of wild birds are admirably showcased in this excellent visual book, a feast for the eyes. The text by Kerlinger (How Birds Migrate, Flight Strategies of Migrating Birds) consists of glorified picture captions, but as with the rest of his writing, these are informative and cogent. Wings in the Wild does not pretend to be anything more than a coffee-table book, but it is a superior addition to this genre. The six sections, each with a brief, introductory text, are divided by habitats: "Arctic Tundra," "Forest and Field," "Marsh, Lake, and River," "Desert, Scrub, and Prairie," "Ocean and Sea" (that is, far offshore), and "Seashore." Highly recommended. Henry T. Armistead, Free Lib. of Philadelphia
