In fact, they have changed his whole life.Having once been gainfully employed by a semi-state company in a secure, pensionable job, he gave it all up to dedicate his life to birdwatching. In this remarkable memoir, Eric tells us of his love of nature from his earliest days and how it has influenced him throughout his life, inspiring many adventures, including trips around the world. In doing so, he provides a snapshot of growing up in Dublin in the '60s and '70s.

Some people spend all their lives dreaming of following their passion- Eric Dempsey's memoir reveals a life all the more rewarding for doing so.
