Published: W. W. Norton & Company - March 15th, 2022

It's been over 20 years since Weidensaul's previous work on migration,and it's hard to think much more can be added. Well, he does, and he does it in that evocative and immersive way that us bird lovers know Weidensaul for. The past two decades of technology have deepened our understanding of migration and, even moreso, how our species' impact on the planet puts the avian world in peril.

Feral Creatures By Kira Jane Buxton Cover Image
ISBN: 9781538735251
Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: Grand Central Publishing - June 28th, 2022

Feral Creatures--a stupendous sophomore novel for Buxton, and a more sentimental sequel to my favorite adventure story of 2019-- cannot be missed! It's a colorful education in climate change, ecology, and zoology; a tender acknowledgement of the unavoidable  "dark tides" we all sink into--especially during disastrous times; a genuine display of the hopeful, hilarious, and often fearful process of building a family; a true odyssey.  

Oh, and there are  *chilling*  new animal/human/zombie hybrids to war against your favorite profane crow, a wild child, and their quirky cast of again I say YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS!!
