More About Roger Tory Peterson Institute & Margaret McKenny

Roger Tory Peterson Roger Tory Peterson‚ one of the world’s preeminent naturalists‚ was born August 28‚ 1908‚ in Jamestown‚ New York. As is often the case‚ it was an influential teacher who turned a young boy away from mischief and toward a new future. Peterson’s seventh-grade teacher encouraged her class to join a Junior Audubon Club. Her enthusiasm for birds was captivating‚ and almost overnight Peterson became completely absorbed in their world. Not satisfied to observe the birds passively‚ Peterson became passionate about identifying each species. He began making field sketches and soon thereafter decided to pursue a career as an artist.

FROM STUDENT TO TEACHER

After graduating from high school‚ Peterson moved to New York City‚ where he attended the Art Students League (1927-1928) and the National Academy of Design (1929-1931). During this time‚ his pursuit of birds continued unabated and he had the opportunity to meet many of the leading ornithologists of the day. As an instructor in science and art at the Rivers School in Brookline‚ Massachusetts‚ he had his first opportunity to begin sharing his joy of bird watching with the next generation. Elliot Richardson (later attorney general of the United States) was one of Peterson’s students. Many years later‚ Richardson remembered Peterson’s influence and nominated him for Outstanding Teacher of the Year. This award was only one of the many honors Peterson would earn in his lifetime. The culmination of Peterson’s artistic and bird identification skills was the publication of his first book‚ A Field Guide to the Birds‚ in 1934.

When Peterson sought a publisher for the book‚ some doubted whether he could entice people into watching — and learning how to identify — birds. But when Houghton Mifflin took a chance on the young artist and naturalist‚ A Field Guide to the Birds sold out its first printing of 2‚000 copies in one week. It has never stopped selling in five different editions over the last 68 years‚ and it has gone on to spawn the most successful series of nature guides ever published in the United States.

Roger Tory Peterson was born in 1908 and died in 1996.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Field Guide to Wildflowers: Northeastern and North Central North America  Jun 1, 2010
This book has been extremely helfpful for me to learn the names of local wildflowers. It is very descriptive and categorized by flower color, and can easily be carried while hiking.
 
Easy to use  Feb 6, 2010
This field guide is perfect size to take with you when exploring, searching for and
identifying wildflowers
 
WILDFLOWER BOOK POOR BINDING  Feb 1, 2010
I HAVE AN OLD VERSION OF THIS BOOK THAT IS PROPERLY BOUND IE THREAD, WHICH ALLOWS

ONE TO USE AS FIELD BOOK AND IT WILL HOLD UP

THIS NEW VERSION IS GLUE BOUND, AND FALLS APART WHEN USED AS A FIELD GUIDE IS.

DISAPPOINTED

GOOD CONTENT. BUT LOUSY CONSTRUCTION
 
the first one I grab in the field  Nov 17, 2009
Of all my guides, I've consistently used this one for 30 years. It may not get you to the exact species, but it will get you to genus. (I then use a key in other books to get to species). Being color coded it is easy to use. The drawings and field marks are good. It also helps you learn the families. I give this book to all of my friends who ask for a "good wildflower book" to take in the woods.
 
Best wildflower book  Oct 2, 2009
I have many wildflower books, and this is the one I like the best, and give as a gift to friends.
