Southwesterners are well accustomed to this sleek, mostly brown and white, long-tailed nemesis of coyote as it darts across roads or perches on a post of branch never too far from the ground. Meinzer's photo study is his personal account of the years he has spent observing and recording the daily routine of several roadrunner families. Through his lens, Meinzer chronicled roadrunners' courting, mating, nesting, hunting, and rearing of their young. Punctuated by humor and poignancy, his story possesses an unmatched connectedness and insights afforded only those who develop a longstanding relationship with their subjects of study. Many of the roadrunners that Meinzer recorded became comfortable with his presence - one even permitted his assistance in catching a lizard. This tenth anniversary edition includes a new preface from Meinzer, a foreword by Andrew Sansom, and several new photographs, including two of a rare white roadrunner.
