A World On The Wing


| /

Pulitzer Prize finalist and ornithologist Scott Weidensaul is at the cutting-edge of research into bird migration. This landmark work of nature writing sees him embark on a global journey to track the remarkable flights undertaken by birds around the world, from the storm-wracked waters of the Bering Sea to the Mediterranean and India, where a migratory crisis has been turned into an unprecedented conservation success. As the effects of climate change become increasingly evident, this is the rousing and reverent story of the billions of birds and their extraordinary migrations that may provide an invaluable guide to creating a more sustainable future for ourselves.
