Description
Amateurs and professionals studying birds at the end of the 19th century were a contentious, passionate group, driven by a desire to advance science, as well as by ego, pride, honor, insecurity, religion and other clashing sensibilities. They struggled to absorb the implications of evolution after Darwin, and in the process, dramatically reshaped the study of birds. Daniel Lewis here explores the professionalization of ornithology through the work of Robert Ridgway, the Smithsonian Institution's first curator of birds and one of North America's most important natural scientists.

"This book does an excellent job of underlining the lasting value of Ridgway's work and those of his colleagues and rivals, and they form the basis of just about every aspect of modern bird study."Birdwatch
