Roger Tory Peterson had already made his mark with his innovative field guide when he conducted DDT research during World War II. His friend and fellow naturalist Rachel Carson built on these efforts and eventually wrote Silent Spring, a landmark text that, along with Peterson’s field guide, jump-started the modern environmental movement. By combining the tireless observation of a scientist with the imaginative skills of an artist and writer, Peterson created a field guide that Robert Bateman, in his foreword to the fifth edition, says was the doorway for millions of people into the wonderland of natural history. The Peterson Identification System has been used in the more than fifty books that make up the Peterson Field Guide series. Peterson’s magnum opus, now in its fifth edition, created the trail for countless field guides to follow. They are still following year by year, but his is the standard by which all other field guides are judged. On the morning of July 28, 1996, Roger Peterson was painting his final bird plate. He died peacefully in his sleep later that day. It is fitting that his final work—a culmination of more than sixty years of observing, painting, and writing—should be this one, a revision of the guide that started his legacy.

Roger Tory Peterson's unique system shows exactly what features to look for to tell one species from another. Peterson Field Guides are designed to work in the field, and every illustration, every word, is directed to that end. For each Field Guide, an author with expertise in the subject and an experienced artist work closely with the editors to ensure that both text and illustrations are accurate. As the most comprehensive and in-depth guide to North American mammals, this book covers all the mammals found in North America north of Mexico, including those that live in near-shore waters. The only guide to include paintings and photographs of the animals as well as photographs of mammal skulls, it has 80 color plates, plus 46 additional color illustrations and black-and-white drawings, nearly 400 range maps, and more than 100 color photographs.

Die mehrfach ausgezeichnete Schauspielerin Drew Barrymore erzählt die lustigsten, eindrucksvollsten und ergreifendsten Geschichten aus ihrem Leben. Angefangen bei ihrer Jugend als Kinderstar, über die skandalträchtigen Teenager-Jahre bis hin zu ihrem heutigen Leben als glückliche Mutter von zwei Töchtern. Wildflower ist ein Porträt von Drews Leben in einzelnen Geschichten, in denen sie zurückblickt auf ein bewegtes Leben voller Abenteuer, Herausforderungen und unglaublicher Erfahrungen. Weshalb das Wäschewaschen ihr, als sie mit 14 Jahren alleine lebte, möglicherweise das Leben rettete, wie sie in den Randbezirken von New Orleans einmal mit einem Wohnmobil unter einem Tankstellendach feststeckte, wie sie ganz persönlich Abschied von ihrem Vater nahm, der diese Rolle niemals erfüllte, weshalb sie mit Cameron Diaz auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Adrenalinkick Fallschirmspringen ging – all diese und noch viele weitere Geschichten und Erfahrungen sind in Wildflower enthalten. Ein buntes Bouquet von Geschichten einer faszinierenden Frau, Mutter und Persönlichkeit. »Eine reine Freude ... Wenn Sie Drew Barrymore bisher nur sympathisch fanden ... nach der Lektüre ihrer Essays werden Sie sie vergöttern.« - New York Times Book Review
