" Here is a bird book with a differece.
In the vital yet sensitive photographs of the internationally renowned wildlife photographer Peter Johnson, we see the birds of Southern Africa living their endlessly fascinating lives in th freedom of their natural environment.
The text emphasises the social and unusual - the living bird's adaptions for survival - rather than the clinically scientific; its aim is simply to fascinate.
Some of the photographs are of species never satifactorily portrayed before, while the text includes material only recently brought to light.
As Free as a Bird is intended for pleasure - to be picked up at any time, opened at any page and enjoyed."
