Reviews
An immense, heroic and surprisingly uplifting narrative of endurance and survival.-- "The Guardian (London)"
The greatest story ever recorded in the study of migration.-- "The Australian"
A magnificent and personal account of the world we share with migratory shorebirds.--Heather Rose, author of the award-winning novel, The Museum of Modern Love
A tender account of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of Australia's shorebirds in their extraordinary pursuit of eternal spring, and the scientists who fight to preserve their flyways.--Penny Olsen, author of Night Parro
An epic journey soaring on the wings of feather-scraps. Exquisitely told.--Wendy Harmer, writer and broadcaster
Darby invites readers to fly along on the transworld journey of two grey plovers as they make their way from Australia, cross the north-west coast and Indonesia, pass through the Yellow Sea and Siberia, and finally settle in the Arctic to breed...Darby's diagnosis with stage-IV cancer during the writing of this book adds to its already-dramatic effect: it's a work of great importance, and its words are not to be taken lightly.-- "Booklist"
A vividly-detailed nature narrative.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
