Synopses & Reviews
Snow geese spend their summers on the tundra of the Canadian Arctic. Each autumn they migrate south to Delaware, California and the Gulf of Mexico. In the spring they fly north again. William Fiennes decided to go with them. The arc of Fiennes' extraordinary adventure frames meditations on philosophy, natural science and personal memoir. The book thrums with ideas, stories and anecdotes, with humankind as well as fowl, with the funny and acute insights of an assured and highly entertaining writer.
