This would be an excellent addition to my field guides. I would love an autographed copy.

How birding changed our lives

My husband Rett and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend the week on Hog Island, Maine, with Kenn Kauffman as our guide. It was about ten years ago and I had just purchased Kenn's first edition of Guide to North American Birds. During a walk with Kenn I made a comment that his index at the back needed to be highlighted as the indentations for subspecies were confusing and I showed him how I had blackened the major species with a pen. I noticed in his second edition, that he did indeed revise that situation.
Over these past ten years, we have purchased many copies of his guide as gifts for our children and friends. We have become birdguides ourselves and lead many walks for the Audubon societies and private groups.
We wrote an article entitled Birding 101 or How Our Life Has Gone To the Birds which has been published in several Audubon Societies newsletters,
We have presented an Introductuion to Birdwatching program for various groups over these many years and I still have my original copy of Kenn's guide with a photo of us and an autograph from him. We also have his book on mammels, butterflies and Lives of North American Birds.
Whether we win this book or not, it will eventually be in our library.

I have a 1st edition of Peterson Guide which was my grandmother's. It would be nice to have a new signed copy of Kaufman's to pass on to my grandchildren.

Love to have another copy!

I gave my copy to my son a few years ago. He uses it still and enjoys it very much. I would love to have another copy. Thanks for the chance.

Never enough...

You can never have too many field guides (IMHO) and this is one I don't have yet.
