'I quickly became pleasantly immersed in the book, spent an hour going through it page by page, and realized I must share it with The Birding Wire readers ... If you're looking for a good novel, consider opting instead for the Birds of Mongolia; I strongly recommend it.' -- Paul Konrad * The Birding Wire *
