As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Roger Tory Peterson's birth today, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Peterson Field Guide to the Birds, of course. But second, I think of all the other field guides and nature books that bear the Peterson moniker. Houghton-Mifflin's "Peterson Field Guide" series has always been a favorite of mine. Here's my pile of Peterson field guides.
Is there a topic that you'd love to see covered in a Peterson guide that hasn't been covered? Do you have a favorite non-bird Peterson guide? Please leave a comment!
