With entrancing collages and lyrical narration, the creator of the acclaimed Mirror follows the epic flight of an extraordinary bird.

Each year, bar-tailed godwits undertake the longest unbroken migration of any bird, flying from their breeding grounds in the Arctic to Australia and New Zealand and back again. They follow invisible pathways -- pathways that have been followed for thousands of years -- while braving hunger and treacherous conditions to reach their destination. In Circle, Jeannie Baker follows the godwit's incredible flight, taking us over awe-inspiring scenes as the birds spread their wings above such beautiful landmarks as the Great Barrier Reef and China's breathtaking cityscapes.

An exquisite migration book on the Bartailed Godwits, a migration route that may very well take the wits of God to accomplish is astonishing. Gorgeous illustrations with a dreamy and magical feel.
A bird and book worth knowing, inspiring humanity:

"In its lifetime the godwit will usually fly farther
than the distance from the earth to the moon."
