Raised in the moorlands of Yorkshire, Richard and Cherry Kearton developed a boyhood fascination with nature .

Richard and Cherry Kearton were brothers who grew up in the English country. When they grew up they both got jobs at a publisher company in London. They missed the country and visited every chance they could. On one visit Cherry took a picture of a birds nest. That is when Richard sparked the idea of taking pictures of all kinds of birds and nests and create a book. It took the brothers 3 years to collect all the pictures they wanted. To capture the most perfect shots they hid in camouflage that they created

Raised in the moorlands of Yorkshire, Richard and Cherry Kearton developed a boyhood fascination with nature that fostered their great desire to photograph it. Together the brothers invented ingenious camouflage "hides" (including one inside the belly of an ox) in order to get closer to their subjects of birds. After three years, the brothers published the first natural history book entirely illustrated with photographs; it changed the way people view birds and their nests, inspiring them to protect them rather than plunder them.

Simple and lovely account of this true story of the Kearton brothers. Beautiful illustrations with just a few lines of text per page. Great to inspire both children and adults as to how we can have a good interaction with nature through photography and how the result of this interaction can be put to good use to alert people to many problems threatening the natural world. Ends with a collection o f real historical photographs of the Kearton brothers in action and written notes about their lives.

A fun and interesting read. The reader gets historical background delightfully presented by a very talented author and artist. It demonstrates that a true story can be presented in such a way that it seems more like an expression of love.

What a stunning book this is! Yes, as another reviewer put it, the cover does draw the reader into the book, and it just keeps getting better from there! This book is suitable for mid-to-upper elementary, and really, for any child who feels he may be a "square peg"--and please see Cherry Kearton's comment on that, at the end of the book! Rebecca Bond did a fantastic job on the story, making it informative and interesting, and her illustrations are amazing. My wish is that every "square peg" out there would have the opportunity to change the world the way the Keartons did!

My 7 year old son picked this book out at the library. Over the past 10 years of motherhood, I have fallen in love with picture books. Little life lessons distilled onto pages, gorgeous and varied artwork, a glimpse into the minds of those who've retained the magic of childhood, not to mention all the joy, education, warm fuzzies and whatnot the kids get out of it. We visit the library weekly and read a wide range of books. Every now and then I find a gem that sets itself above the rest. This true story of two brothers following their dreams, illustrated in realistic but dreamy watercolor was a hit on my couch. Thank you Rebecca Bond!
