For those interested in tropical birds and other wildlife, South America is a paradise, as described in Go West For Parrots written by Rosemary Low. From its cities to the shrinking wild and unspoilt forests, mountains, lakes and paramo regions, it is teeming with fascinating creatures. Rosemary Low’s journeys to the neotropics, starting in 1975 and spanning 33 years, are described in this absorbing book. The emphasis is firmly on the birds and other fauna, with a sprinkling of people, culture and adventures along the way.
About The Author
Rosemary Low has had a lifelong interest in parrots and is known worldwide for her influential books and magazine articles. Most of her professional life has involved these charismatic birds. She has had more than 20 books published on parrots, as well as other avian topics. Her books have been translated into German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Czech and Japanese. Her first, The Parrots of South America, written while she was still in her twenties, reflects her intense interest, extending over more than 40 years, in the parrots of this continent.
She has travelled widely, speaking at avicultural symposiums in four continents and observing parrots in the wild in more than 30 countries.
