Description - Real James Bond: A True Story of Identity Theft, Avian Intrigue and Ian Fleming by Jim Wright
Whatever happened to him actually outshines anything I've had my James Bond do. - Ian Fleming When the real James Bond published his 1936 landmark book, Birds of the West Indies, he had no idea that the 007 creator would steal his name, linking him to the most iconic spy in the Western world. But Bond lived a parallel life of intrigue, and this is the first book to tell his story through the lens of history. Filled with more than 30 archival photos, many never before published, here is the real story of the pipe-smoking, armed and ruthless ornithologist who introduced the world to the exotic birds of the West Indies. AUTHOR: Jim Wright (Allendale, New Jersey) is a prize-winning writer, blogger, and birding columnist for The (Bergen) Record in northern New Jersey. His books include The Nature of the Meadowlands, Jungle of the Maya, and Hawk Mountain.
