One of Our Books on ABC's FlashForward

My godson Thomas Kulik, natural science wiz and sci-fi fan, was excited to tell us some very interesting news. Last week's episode of the new ABC TV show FlashForward featured Birds of North America, a field guide that our Nature Guide Jon Latimer, bird expert and artist James Coe, and I revised and updated a few years ago. This guide is one of the leading authorities on American birds. It has introduced hundreds of thousands to the sport of birding. The book appears in the third episode, "137 Sekunden," which follows a story line about crows dying mysteriously around the world. Thanks to FlashForward for choosing our field guide and to my eagle-eyed Tom for being such a loyal fan — of FlashForward and of our books!
