About this book

Approximately 250 wild whooping cranes nest in northern Canada and winter in south Texas, flying 2,500 miles annually between these two distinct havens. Each of these terminal migratory places is protected from human encroachment, by a U.S. national wildlife refuge on the one hand and a Canadian national park on the other.

On the flock's wintering grounds at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in Texas, photographer Klaus Nigge has captured the daily activity of a single family over several weeks in two separate years, documenting their life in the salt marshes of the central Texas coast. He has also photographed the cranes' summer nesting sites in remote areas of Wood Buffalo National Park. The photographs in this book are accompanied by vignettes composed by the author.

Media reviews

Klaus Nigge's photography captures the rarely seen behavior and astounding grace of whooping cranes. More importantly, his photography gives voice to the cranes' continuing struggle for survival.--Kathy Moran, Senior Editor, Natural History, National Geographic "Uniquely in the pages of this book, Klaus Nigge takes us for the first time to the nesting habitat of a pair of whooping cranes and their newborn offspring in the wilderness of northern Canada, and also photographically depicts the lives of that migrating population in their more familiar wintering grounds on the Texas coast. . . . I hope a copy of this remarkable book can become a centerpiece in libraries and schools wherever cranes and humans converge."--from the Foreword by George Archibald, Cofounder, International Crane Foundation
