Uncle Sam s Plantation is an incisive look at how government manipulates, controls, and ultimately devastates the lives of the poor and what Americans must do to stop it. Once a hustler and welfare addict who was chewed up and spit out by the ruthless welfare system, Star Parker sheds much needed light on the bungled bureaucratic attempts to end poverty and reveals the insidious deceptions perpetrated by self-serving politicians. Star Parker rocks the world. She is an iconoclast that must be listened to and reckoned with. Sean Hannity Star Parker s important new book helps advance the understanding critical for all Americans that prosperity does not come from government and politics but results from men and women of character and high moral fiber living and working in freedom. Larry Kudlow Star Parker s new book brings us back to eternal truths faith, family, love, and responsibility. Dr. Laura Schlessinger Casts new light on the redemptive power of freedom. Rush Limbaugh"

Review:

[T]he guide against which all others for the New World tropics will be judged.---Don Stap, Audubon

Part of the excellent Princeton University Press field guide series, the book describes and illustrates 1,817 species of birds to be found in Peru. It's concise (at 664 pages!), well-designed, and worth a look (just take it off the store shelf and page through it) because it demonstrates the extraordinary variety of the bird world.---Jim Williams, Minnesota Star Tribune

Rarely in the history of tropical ornithology have so many waited so long and so eagerly for a field guide to appear. . . . The end result of this long process is a spectacular addition to the literature on South American birds. The plates are superb, the guide is easy to use in the field, the range maps are informative and accurate, and the text is concise while still including essential information.---Scott K. Robinson, Auk

Birds of Peru will be a great addition to any birder's library. You never know if buying this field guide is the gentle nudge that you need to purchase a plane ticket to Lima. I hope someday that my copy is battered and stained from an epic birding trip to Peru.---Radd Icenoggle, Radleyice blog

This is definitely a book I want to put to good use someday when I hopefully get to travel to Peru to see some of these birds. This guide is also highly recommended . . . for its great illustrations, range maps and easy to use layout.---Drew and Alex Lamoreaux, Nemesis Bird

[A] worthy successor to the original edition. . . . The plates are amazingly thorough, again considering the extent of the task involved in covering more than 1,800 species. Each facing page has a species account and map. The text for each species is limited to about one-sixth of the page, and the maps are small, but these features make this 664-page volume a real 'use-in-the-field' book. It's quite an accomplishment. Highly recommended for anyone venturing to this part of the world--how will they top this?--Bluebird's Laugh blog

Birds of Peru provides a complete and awesome guide to identify Peruvian birds.--Birdwatching Binoculars

A major accomplishment--Birder's World

Be assured that when I make my journey to Peru this summer . . . that I will be toting a copy of Birds of Peru at all times.--John E. Riutta blog
