Reviews

Charming and impassioned ... a rich tribute to an extraordinary bird. -- Horatio Clare, author of A Single Swallow and Heavy Light
A truly lovely book. -- Mary Colwell, author of Curlew Moon
This is wonderful: written with light and love. A tonic for these times. -- Stephen Rutt, author of The Seafarers: A Journey Among Birds
A delightful account of a lifelong passion for seabirds. -- Stephen Moss, naturalist and author of The Swallow: A Biography
A memoir lit by wry humour and vivid prose. -- Brian Jackman, author of Wild About Britain
This is a book that birders will enjoy because it is stitched together around a fairly amazing bird, but if you've never heard of shearwaters you will still get a lot out of this book if you are interested in nature, in adventures, in foreign parts, in landscapes or in people ... a very good read. -- Mark Avery
