This was a gift for my mother - she thought it was great.

This beautiful slim volume is written from the point of view of a young sandhill crane, migrating from the Gulf of Mexico to nesting grounds in Alaska and back again. Through its simple poetic lines it is easy to visualize the North Platte River region where the crane becomes injured, loses his parents for several days, and is nursed back to health by a young girl and her family, as well as the broad plains of the Alaskan nesting grounds. You feel the exhaustion of the new young chicks as they follow their parents in completing the migration back to the Gulf of Mexico. In its simplicity and joy in nature, this book reminded me a bit of the Tao of Pooh. But it is entirely an original concept - nature poetry at its best, which enlightens us and lets us see the world through their eyes, reminding us that their view has as much value as ours.

I've admired this book by Paul Johnsgard for years. Now I finally own it!
The book is as delightful as is the author.
A must-have book if you're interested in Sandhill Cranes.

I read this book many years ago and have just bought a new copy of it. I have lived in Nebraska 40 years and have each year enjoyed the arrival of these wondrous birds to the Platte river. Being a birder I have other books by Johnsgard, a scientist who is a joy to read
