Dan Koeppel and his father have enjoyed a life-long obsession with competitive birding. This isn't a sport for the weak. He and his father are part of only a handful of people who have actually seen over 7,000 species of birds of the 9,000 known to man. To See Every Bird on Earth has three interwoven stories; the Koepples' compulsion to see and catalog the natural world, the arduous efforts they endure to see fantastic and exotic birds, and the unique relationship between father and son.
Dan Koeppel has been writing for more than 20 years about bikes, bike racing, and outdoor adventure for National Geographic Adventure, Bicycling, Men's Journal, and ESPN: The Magazine. He was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 2003.
