The long awaited book chronicling Rick and Elis Simpson’s travels to see as many waders, or shorebirds if you prefer, in a year.
This book has it all, hilarious anecdotes told in a gritty style, personal family tragedy, elation and disappointment, joy and woe. The descriptive text conjures up the birds and places visited, all written with a weathered eye on the conservation issues facing waders across the globe.
There are two journeys running trough this book, the travelling to see waders, and the story of Wader Quest itself from its inadvertent beginnings to the charity it is today.
Rick and Elis Simpson have sacrificed much in their lives to dedicate their time and energy into promoting wader conservation. Find out what drives them in their all consuming passion for these wonderful birds.
