One of my favorite things to read in non-fiction is books about people obsessed with something and the subculture surrounding those obsessions (cook-offs, scrabble, thru-hiking, etc) in this case that obsession is with exotic feathers used in the hobby of making Victoria salmon fly lures.

It’s weird, it’s interesting and I learned quite a bit about Victorian era explorers and naturalists. Highly recommend! it’s shocking to me that a crime like this could be so easily committed and the repercussions were really a huge surprise to me.

I read this on kindle and need to seek out the physical book to better appreciate the photos of the birds and lures but I think google did lots to help me there.

Wow- that is one crazy, crazy story, and also rather frustrating.
The author knows how to weave a story, really liked his writing style. Great read!

This was a really interesting cross section of a time and place you never really hear about. The hate, the violence, the destruction was astounding. But the author balanced it with stories of determination and strength. Difficult read but worth it.
