Peter Matthiessen’s great American epic–Killing Mister Watson, Lost Man’s River, and Bone by Bone–was conceived as one vast mysterious novel, but because of its length it was originally broken up into three books. In this bold new rendering, Matthiessen has cut nearly a third of the overall text and collapsed the time frame while deepening the insights and motivations of his characters with brilliant rewriting throughout.

Illustrated with colour plates by the renowned American wildlife artist Robert Bateman, "The Birds of Heaven" captures the beauty of a vanishing species and the dilemma of a planet in ecological crisis. Format Hardback 372 pages.

A forward by Peter Matthiessen adds glamour to other wise a great book with great amount of information on birds and its locations with of course fantastic paintings of birds from around the world. No other artist takes such amount of interest in ecology, biology and natural history to make one such authentic painting of a single wild subject. When compared to his other books, this one is exclusively only on birds and I wish he covered more of this subjects, perhaps in his next book!!?? This highly talented wildlife artist's books should be the subject of any nature lovers. Cant' miss it!

The service from Farm-For-Books was better than could be expected, exceptional!

The book is new but the picture quality is not quite up to previous books by Bateman, on whom, I think, time is taking its toll.
I am not far behind him in age, so I feel safe in making that judgement, but about a million floors below him in the tower of wildlife art.
Everybody knows that he too is exceptional.

Duhhh! What not to love? His work is above and beyond the best of wildlife portraiture. Have admired him for years and now I have this precious book to add to my collection.

I am a big fan of Bateman, and enjoyed reading more about his process and experiences. Great for artists, collectors and naturalists alike.

The book arrived in very good condition and on schedule. Enjoying it very much. Lots of beautiful pictures that he has painted. Love them.
Robert Bateman is THE master wildlife artist of our time in my opinion. This coffee-table quality book contains his beautiful bird art and it is one that you will want to linger over to gaze upon the beautiful diversity of birds in our world AND Mr. Bateman's incredible artistic talents. He captures the birds in their own environment and the narrative provides some background. However, this book is not quite on par with his Natural Worlds, which I think has superior illustrations and quality. I would loved to have more species included, but I understand the need for editing down what is included in a book of this size. I did find the text interesting where Bateman shares his thoughts and experiences of the natural world. If you are a Bateman fan like I am, any of his books serve as an inspiration, whether or not you are an aspiring wildlife artist or not. I bought a used version of this book for an extremely reasonable price and was VERY pleased with the condition and delivery time.
