His childhood was unhappy, and he ran away to join the circus, where his future partner Harry Kellar also performed. Thurston was deeply impressed after he attended magician Alexander Herrmann's magic show and was determined to equal his work. He eventually became the most famous magician of his time.

Shorebirds are known for their swift flight, their piercing cries, and their extravagantly long legs and bills. They are also known for their spectacular migrations, which may take them from the Canadian High Arctic to the tip of South America, spanning 15,000 miles or more on their round trip. Magnificently illustrated with some of the best photographs of shorebirds in the world, The World of the Shorebirds illuminates the mystery of this migration, along with many other aspects of North American shorebirds' lives.Award-winning author Harry Thurston examines the dazzling diversity of shorebirds, looks at the birds' obsessive feeding behavior, necessitated by their long migrations and the need to accumulate reserves of fat, and describes the sometimes-bizarre mating patterns of various species. He also describes the epic migrations of shorebirds as they travel south for the winter and then back north to breed and take advantage of the abundance of food produced by long hours of sunlight. Finally, Thurston examines the threats to shorebird habitat from agriculture, urban development, power projects, pollution, and recreation and describes the efforts to conserve critical wetlands throughout the world.Harry Thurston's elegant, authoritative text is accompanied by color photographs of the many species of shorebirds as they probe in the mud for their dinner, flock across the skies, or stand silhouetted against a sunset. The book also includes photographs of the birds' natural habitat and of the other animals that share this habitat. Together, text and photographs provide a tantalizing look at the world of the restless, roving shorebirds.
