Description


Birdwatching with American Women is a gift to all enthusiastic amateurs in natural history. . . . [Strom’s] introductions match the quality of the best of the writing. . . . A delightful collection.” —Erma J. Fisk, author of The Peacocks of Baboquivari


American women have long been writing with wit and style about birds, but most of these writers (with exceptions such as Sarah Orne Jewett and Celia Thaxter) have been little known. Deborah Strom now offers a sampling of the fine birding literature produced by women from the late 1800s through World War II, introducing the writers “intriguingly, succinctly limning lives of often great fascination” (Booklist)
