Dear Finlanders,
I am trying to find a copy of A Year in Kuusamo an excellent collection of bird photograph by Hannu Hautala. I bought one about the birds of Österbotten two years ago, and really enjoy it! I am a birdwatcher, of course. Does anyone know the email for Mr. Hautala? Perhaps I could contact him directly and purchase a copy?

One good link where to find information about books published in Finland is to visit the Helsingfors area library database (http://www.helmet.fi/screens/opacmenu.html)

Here you may search for books by title, author etc. and end up finding the magic ISBN numbers which are needed when ordering books.

The search for Syrene's book gave:

Author Hautala, Hannu
Title A year in Kuusamo : diary of a Finnish bird photographer / Hannu Hautala ; [Engl. transl.: Richard Hayhurst]
Publ data [Espoo] : Weilin + Göös, 1985
Control # 9513535304
ISBN 951-35-3530-4 (sid.)
Orig title Kuukkelin maa

Local note KIRJA / BOK
Add author Hayhurst, Richard.

Maybe the book could be obtained when you know the ISBN?

Dear Hasse,
Many thanks!! This was a book in which I was interested for personal use, but there are many books which we buy for the SFHS library as well. I run across them on eBay every once in a while. Perhaps a list of desired books for the SFHS collection would reach those Finlander members who are weeding out their own book stock?
