Whooping Crane: Images from the Wild


Whooping Crane: Images from the Wild Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Uniquely in the pages of this book, Klaus Nigge takes us for the first time to the nesting habitat of a pair of whooping cranes and their newborn offspring in the wilderness of northern Canada, and also photographically depicts the lives of that migrating population in their more familiar wintering grounds on the Texas coast....I hope a copy of this remarkable book can become a centerpiece in libraries and schools wherever cranes and humans converge."---from the Foreword by George Archibald Cofounder, International Crane Foundation

"Klaus Nigge's photography captures the rarely seen behavior and astounding grace of whooping cranes. More importantly, it gives voice to the cranes' continuing struggle for survival."---Kathy Moran Senior Editor, Natural History, National Geographic
