Resumen del libro

Nature's great migrations have captivated countless spectators, none more so than premier ecologist David S. Wilcove. In "No Way Home," his awe is palpable--as are the growing threats to migratory animals. Wilcove guides us on their treacherous journeys, describing the barriers to migration and exploring what compels animals to keep on trekking. He also brings to life the adventures of scientists who study migrants. Often as bold as their subjects, researchers speed wildly along deserted roads to track birds soaring overhead, explore glaciers in search of frozen locusts, and outfit dragonflies with transmitters weighing less than one one-hundredth of an ounce. As Wilcove writes, "protecting the abundance of migration is key to protecting the glory of migration." "No Way Home" offers powerful inspiration to preserve those glorious journeys.
