An irreverent, absorbing, and insightful tale of one man's adventures following the great 7,000-mile osprey migration across two continents
Soaring with Fidel is a grand and cheering journey on the wings of one of nature's most sociable predators.
Carl Hiassen, author of Nature Girl
David Gessner has long been fascinated by ospreys, graceful raptors with wingspans of up to six feet, renowned the world over for their swashbuckling dives into the ocean. One year, inspired by their annual trip south that crosses numerous borders, Gessner picks up and follows them. With early mornings fueled by strong Cuban coffee, evenings passed sampling local beers, and days spent alongside a cast of international characters in cars, ferries, planes, or on foot, Gessner discovers the beauty of impulsively following what you love.
