Matt Sewell is back with a sumptuous celebration of our planet’s most extreme journeys. This is his own personal selection of the most amazing mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects and even plants that battle through the Earth’s toughest conditions in order to survive.
Follow flocks of arctic terns on their annual 40,000-kilometre journey between the Earth’s poles. Join the monarch butterflies on their famous pilgrimage from Canada to Mexico. Awe at wildebeest, humpback whales, salmon, dragonflies and more. Find out how they navigate themselves on their impressive journeys – chemicals, the sun and/or the Earth’s magnetic field.
Gloriously illustrated in Matt’s signature watercolours, and described with his usual wit and charm, this is one book for any animal lover to treasure.
