About the author

Biography of Kaufman, Kenn

Kenn Kaufman is a legend among birders. At sixteen he hitchhiked back & forth across North America, traveling eighty thousand miles in a year, simply to see as many birds as he could; he came back to tell the story in "Kingbird Highway". A field editor for "Audubon" & a regular contributor to every major birding magazine, he is the youngest person ever to receive the Ludlow Griscom Award, the highest honor of the American Birding Association. His books include "Lives of North American Birds" & the "Peterson Field Guide to Advanced Birding". He lives in Tucson, Arizona.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-10-15)

Building on the success of his earlier field guides, naturalist Kenn Kaufman (Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America), here with his wife, Kimberly (contributing editor, Birds & Blooms), introduces a guide to the nature of New England. This volume contains more than 2000 color photographs and covers New England flora and fauna along with regional geology, astronomy, and marine habitats. Employing his trademark straightforward and nontechnical language, Kaufman provides concise guidelines for locating, observing, and identifying different species.

The book's clean layout and easy-to-use features, such as range maps and colorful reference tabs, cement Kaufman's reputation for producing the most user-friendly field guides around. His innovative approach to species classification-such as organizing wildflowers by color-makes his book an excellent starting point for neophytes.

Verdict: A welcome update to the National Audubon Society's 1998 Field Guide to New England, this is an essential compact reference guide for any amateur naturalist interested in New England.
