      The first book in this series, A Guide to the Birds of East Africa is a charming little novel about a protagonist vying for the attentions of the apple of his eye, the lovely Rose Mbikwa, by having a birdwatching contest with another suitor/5. Birds of East Africa is the first comprehensive field guide to this spectacular birding region--and one of the best to any region in the world. Covering all resident, migrant, and vagrant birds of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi, this small and compact guide describes and illustrates a remarkable 1, species in convenient facing-page layout.

      “A charming love triangle in Nairobi, Kenya, forms the center of a novel that manages to be both sweet and gripping.” —Publishers Weekly For the past three years, Mr. Malik, a widower and avid birdwatcher, has been secretly in love with Rose Mbikwa, the lovely woman who leads the Tuesday morning bird walk sponsored by the East African Ornithological Society/5(2). Book Review Birds of East Africa; Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi By Terry Stevenson & John Fanshawe - () pages; matt art paper, with colour plates of illustrations, 15 monochrome technical drawings and 4 main maps. Soft Cover: cm x 14cm. ISBN: Princeton University Press New Jersey Eastern.

    Bad things happen in this book, but in many ways the book is about the goodness of people and the triumph of that goodness. Any plans for your next novel? I'm working on a couple of books at the moment—a crime story set in Sri Lanka and a sequel to A Guide to the Birds of East Africa. I wouldn't like to go on the record and say which one will. This is the first field guide to the birds of this fascinating region, and a companion to Birds of East Africa by two of the same authors. Over magnificent plates by John Gale and Brian Small illustrate every species that has ever occurred in the five countries covered by the guide, and the succinct text covers the key identification criteria.
