At a Bend in a Mexican River Reviews
Sutton writes well about his enthusiasm for searching for and painting birds in Mexico in the late 1930s and early 1940s. It was a time when painting birds on location was an important way of catching the true colors of the birds. He gives a good feeling of the difficulties he encountered and the wonderful people he met in out of the way places. His expedition takes place during an era when collecting specimens for museums was an important part of field trips to far away places. It is obvious he took great pains to preserve all specimens collected. Its not a book about hunting, but rather a description of the birds, people and places .. a peek into the life of an ornithologist who made great contributions to ornithology.
