About this book

Language: English

The Winged Wonders is a book about Finnish Professor Kauri Mikkola's expeditions to Siberia and North America – to taiga and mountains, the Altai steppe and spruce forests of the Baikal, the Ottawa wetlands, Colorado mountains and the Yukon wilderness. Kauri Mikkola's colorful writing takes you to beautiful scenery in the company of several nature specialists.

The richly illustrated work reveals the secrets of butterflies, birds and plants in mountainous and boreal regions, tells stories of survival in different cultures, and introduces you to top entomologists from the USA, Canada and Russia. The Winged Wonders is a unique expedition in itself, taking you to regions that only a few have visited.

The Winged Wonders is a true reading experience for everyone interested in nature, and answers many questions and queries.
