This book is about American birds, so if you're interest is in birds in other parts of the world than this book is not the right one for you.
There are some bits in this book that are not nice to read for sensitive people (starvation, cat-attack), I do not recommend this book for tender hearted people, there are too many 'unhappy endings' in it. For avid bird watchers this book might be interesting. This volume will also be appealing to persons who are interested in the history of bird-protection and bird-sancturaries in America.
