To See Every Bird on Earth: A Father, a Son and a Lifelong Obsession by Dan Koeppel

Dan Koeppel's father has an obsession: he wants to see every species of bird on earth. But his relentless pursuit of birds led to family break up, a faltering career and an ever growing gulf between him and his son. Perhaps though, the cause of this estrangement could also provide the opportunity for a reconciliation. In 2000, Dan and accompanied his father on a trip to the Amazon in search of the old man's 7,000th bird. This journey and Dan's attempts to understand his father becomes a powerful life-affirming exploration of the relationship between sons and their fathers. 'A memoir not of a hobby, but an obsession, describing a boyhood infatuation that came to wreck Richard's life, ending his marriage, distancing him from family and friends. Warmly told and full of candid insight, it is ultimately a story of reconciliation.' - "Mail on Sunday".
