About this title

Synopsis:

Text and photographs record the habits and characteristics of a family of tundra swans while following them for a year's time.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8-- A book with a narrative rich in poetic style. The cyclic migratory journey of the tundra swans (formerly known as whistling swans) is documented from "swanfall" into their winter home on the Chesapeake Bay to summer breeding grounds in the Arctic tundra. Facts about physical characteristics and behavior are interwoven into a text filled with picturesque phrases describing the beauty of both the birds and their habitats. Awareness of the impact of humans on the bay habitat, resulting changes in swan behavior, and evidence that in nature only the strongest of a species survive are poignantly presented. Full-color double-page and closeup photographs of clarity and exceptional lighting illuminate the swans' beauty. Simple, dotted-line borders of blue effectively frame the well-spaced text. Because the book is more of a mood piece than a report source, it will find its audience in readers with a special interest in waterfowl and their natural environments. --Diane Nunn, Richard E.
