Description of this Book

A short-tailed shearwater flies from the edge of the Southern Ocean to the rim of the Arctic Circle - and back - every year. This remarkable 30,000 kilometre journey is driven by seabird law. Instinct and community will guide her. A wingspan the size of a child's outstretched arms will support her. But first, she must catch the wind... Based on birds that live on Griffith Island, near Port Fairy, Victoria, Windcatcher is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope. Written by award-winning children's author Diane Jackson Hill and illustrated by Craig Smith, one of Australia's most prolific and popular illustrators, Windcatcher explores the mysteries of seabird migration for primary aged readers.
