Korea through her birds: windows into a world.

Korea through her birds: windows into a world. Robert Newlin.
Korea through her birds: windows into a world.

Irvine: Seoul Selection, 2013. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs.

Korea's geographical location, topography, temperate climate, and wealth of diverse habitats combine to support an extraordinarily varied avifauna. Many visitors to Korea see the impressive metropolitan centers of Seoul or Busan, however, few see the more hidden parts of the country such as the western offshore islands, the scattered and diminishing wetlands, the picturesque east coast fishing villages, the mountain hamlets and the river valleys. This book allows the reader to glimpse these places through the birds that live there. This book seeks to introduce the birds: through photographs, through descriptions of their lives, and through the ways our different cultures, Western and Asian both, perceive them.
