Steve Madge, Phil McGowan
This guide brings together, for the first time within a single volume, a comprehensive review of
all the world's peasants, partridges, quail, grouse, turkeys, guineafowl, buttonquail, sandgrouse, and the
enigmatic Plains-wander - over 250 species in all.

As with other volumes in the award-winning Helm Identification Guide series, this book concentrates
on identification and distribution, but also highlights conservation and environmental issues. Each species
is treated in detail, reflecting the extensive knowledge of the authors. The 72 colour plates by leading bird
illustrators form the finest set of illustrations of these birds to date. There is also a colour distribution map for each species.
Pheasants, Partridges and Grouse is a welcome addition to the Helm Identification Guide series and,
more importantly, a landmark volume in the literature of this attractive and vulnerable group of birds.
