Praise for Papa Goose

Papa Goose is destined to become a classic. This book has everything in it I love: great animals beautifully portrayed as individuals; cool science; drama, discovery, and personal transformation. You will love it!’—Sy Montgomery, author of Birdology and The Soul of An Octopus

Papa Goose is a charming, expertly crafted blend of Quetting’s research into geese and love for them as his animal family. The adopted scientist father of this gaggle is an expert in bird biology — but he also knows there is much more to life than what scientific instruments can tell us.’—Jim Robbins, author of The Man Who Planted Trees and The Wonder of Birds

Papa Goose is a wonderful book, full of astute observation and interesting ornithological facts.’––Tim Flannery, The Australian
