商品簡介

作者簡介

三名好友過著平凡的生活,在一次鳥類來襲的大年裡,他們相繼辭去工作,準備參加這年度的賞鳥盛會。該北美賞鳥競賽內容,參賽者必須記錄自己一年內觀察到的鳥類品種,能打破紀錄者便是最後贏家。於是三個好友之間展開一場持久的競賽,他們的生活也因此發生重大改變。

The strange but true tale of the extremes to which Man will go to pursue his dreams, to conquer and to categorize...

Each year, hundreds of people set out across North America determined to set a new record in a spectacularly competitive event. Is it tennis? Golf? Racing? Poker perhaps? No, it's bird-watching, and a contest known as the Big Year - a grand, gruelling, expensive (and occasionally vicious) 365-day marathon to identify the most species.

THE BIG YEAR is the rollicking chronicle of the 275,000-mile odyssey of three unlikely adventurers who take their bird-watching so seriously it nearly kills them. From Texas in pursuit of the Rufus-capped Warbler to British Columbia in search of Xantus' Hummingbird, these obsessive enthusiasts brave roasting deserts, storm-tossed oceans, infested swamps and disgruntled lions (not to mention some of the lumpiest hotel mattresses known to man) as they vie to become North America's number one bird-watcher in what would prove to be the biggest Big Year of them all...
This captivating tour of human and avian nature, of courage and deceit, of passion and paranoia reveals the extremes to which Man will go to pursue his dreams, to conquer and to categorize...

Mark Obmascik has been a journalist for over two decades, most recently at the 'Denver Post', where he was lead writer for the newspaper's Pulitzer Prize. He has also won the National Press Club Award for his environmental journalism. An obsessed birdwatcher himself, he lives in Denver with his wife and sons.
