    Swifts are dark, sooty brown all over, but often look black against the sky. If you get a good look, you might see their pale throat. The wings are long and narrow, with a tail that is slightly forked, but not as much as a swallow's. Swifts have a piercing, screaming call, but they aren't noisy at the nest.

    (, Jackson, MI: Nature Book Publishers) is a delightful account of these birds and their Old and New World relatives, full of interesting facts and historical information. Anyone interested in swifts and seeking more information about swifts can contact the Driftwood Wildlife Association at West 38th, Suite, Austin, TX Many authors write books about events, their lives and their environment, and their corrupt government. One satirical author who wrote a novel about living in a corrupt society is Jonathan Swift who wrote Gulliver’s Travels. The places the protagonist had visited reflected on the author’s English government. The life of the author will be shown.

    In Swifts opinion, some of the fields of science and education, that people worked on in his time, had no point and were simply a waste of time. This is vividly portrayed in the book. The Laputans had absurd projects that they worked on but Gulliver would not be rude. The second edition of this highly acclaimed book has been extensively revised by the author to take account of recent information, most particularly about the neotropical swifts, and several plates have been revised by the artist. Published in association with Christopher Helm/A & C Black.
