From the cover: “Incredible Journeys takes us into the world of six unique animal travellers, following their epic odysseys across land, beneath the sea, and through the skies. Each journey is a natural miracle, each animal an amazing voyager:
- a barn swallow which, before it is even four months old, flies 10,000 kilometres from Britain to South Africa
- a caribou calf, whose trek across the Canadian tundra causes it to walk further than any other animal on earth
- a short-finned eel, which rides the ocean currents to an Australian river, where it spends 15 years before returning to its birthplace in the Pacific to spawn and die
- the astounding 4000 kilometre flight of a delicate monarch butterfly from Canada to Mexico, where it spends winter with millions of others in a mountain refuge
- a newborn grey whale, which swims thousands of kilometres from tropical to polar seas
- a rattlesnake, which navigates annually with pinpoint accuracy to precise destinations in the scorching Sonoran Desert
