I'm sorry to have let this blog lapse -- bird guiding is requiring increasing time each year -- but I figure it's worth posting a few words about my new book, Birding Under the Influence: Cycling Across America in Search of Birds and Recovery. Primarily the story of my 18,000-mile, bird-motivated bicycle trip around the lower 48 states, the adventure narrative is also an honest look at the alcoholism and substance abuse which preceded my departure. Beyond the birds I seek, I write about the people I meet along the road, the incredible array of landscapes I experience, and the overdue introspection which thousands of solitary hours permitted. Rather than rehash the entire story, I'll point you here to read more about and buy the book.
