About the author (2001)

Kenn Kaufman is a legend among birders. At sixteen he hitchhiked back & forth across North America, traveling eighty thousand miles in a year, simply to see as many birds as he could; he came back to tell the story in "Kingbird Highway." A field editor for "Audubon" & a regular contributor to every major birding magazine, he is the youngest person ever to receive the Ludlow Griscom Award, the highest honor of the American Birding Association. His books include "Lives of North American Birds" & the "Peterson Field Guide to Advanced Birding." He lives in Tucson, Arizona.
