Pettingill, Eleanor Rice  
Penguin Summer: An Adventure With the Birds of the Falkland Islands
 Picture
Publisher: Clarkson N. Potter, Inc. , 1960 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Penguins are probably the most captivating birds anywhere, and the only place in the world where it is possible to live with both penguins and people is in the Falkland Islands. This British Crown Colony, three hundred miles off the tip of South America is where Mrs. Pettingill and her ornithologist husband went to observe and photograph the life cycle of the penguins from the time they come ashore to lay their eggs until their young, half grown, take to the water. Here is the story of how the birds shoot ashore from a romp in the water, how they waddle up steep paths to their nests high above the sea, how they brood their chicks and feed them. In short, all the details of their lives seen at first hand. Alternately placid and furious, awkward and dignified, the penguins never cease to be engaging. In addition to the comedy of penguin life, Mrs. Pettingill's narrative describes the hospitable people who lead cheerful, busy lives in their desolate outposts: a sheep farmer and his family, . sailors in perilous seas, robust and highly civilized dwellers in a primitive land. The Pettingills' adventures photographing gulls, albatrosses, and birds of prey compose a warm account that conveys the subtle, haunting lure of a stark, windswept landscape." Well illustrated with black-and-white photographs. 198 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket has small tear to top front edge; otherwise VERY GOOD condition.
