Product Details

Dale Zimmerman's singular memoir details a half-century of ornithological investigations in East Africa, at a time when Africa's fabled wildlife and wild habitats flourished beneath the snows of Kilimanjaro. Set against the political backdrop of the shift from colonial to African rule, Turaco Country documents a field ornithologist's quintessentially African experience, capturing the sights, scents and sounds of a vanishing world.

Our Opinion: A massive tome, a wonderful book for anyone interested in African birds and wildlife. Recommended highly. The writing is interesting, and it is loaded with color photographs. It's especially meaningful for those who have been to East Africa or would like to go there.
