The latest Rosemary Low's book
This very personal book relates her experiences on many trips throughout Central and South America over a 35 year period
I have been reading Rosemary Low's latest book " Go West for Parrots - A South American Odyssey ", which is quite different from her other many books on parrot keeping and breeding. I have known her for nearly twenty-five years and have long admired her dedication to the preservation of parrots, whether in the wild or in the aviary. She has been publishing books for nearly 40 years and during this time got to know many of the great names in conservation and aviculture. This very personal book relates her experiences on many trips throughout Central and South America over a 35 year period. It touches on the enormous changes during this period throughout the continent and the various endeavours, successful and otherwise, to conserve parrots and their habitats. She has not been afraid to offer criticism where she felt it necessary.
Rainer Niemann has written a short book review for publication in the April edition of "Papageien", which I have translated. You can read the translation by clicking here and the original German text by clicking here.
