From the Back Cover:

When Tim Gallagher was a child, he went to a museum exhibit of early maps. These tattered, ornately drawn charts often had one thing in common - a vast, black area to the north labeled Parts Unknown. Tim was fascinated with the idea of places completely unknown to mapmakers, and he made it his goal to visit and photograph these "unexplored" regions (and its avian inhabitants) for himself.Parts Unknown is the result of that quest. Here is a remarkable new collection of essays on Tim's lifelong fascination with birds, and how it has evolved into a daring brand of "adventure birding." Join Tim as he dangles on ropes at Gyrfalcon nest cliffs in northern Greenland and Iceland, traps migrating Arctic Peregrine Falcons on barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico, journeys in an open boat for hundreds of miles up the west coast of Greenland to survey bird colonies, and learn about the continuing efforts to save the endangered California Condor. With a stunning full-color insert of Tim's finest photographs, Parts Unknown is an extraordinary look into an unexplored world. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 244 pages, color photos)
