The Snoring Bird: My Familys Journey Through a Century of Biology by Bernd Heinrich

From Bernd Heinrich, the bestselling author of Winter World, comes the remarkable story of his fathers life, his familys past, and how the forces of history and nature have shaped his own life. Although Bernd Heinrichs father, Gerd, a devoted naturalist, specialized in wasps, Bernd tried to distance himself from his old-fashioned father, becoming a hybrid: a modern, experimental biologist with a naturalists sensibilities. In this remarkable memoir, the award-winning author shares the ways in which his relationship with his father, combined with his unique childhood, molded him into the scientist, and man, he is today. From Gerds days as a soldier in Europe to the familys daring escape from the Red Army in 1945 to the rustic Maine farm they came to call home, Heinrich relates it all in his trademark style, making science accessible and awe-inspiring.
