The Magnificent Migration
On Safari with Africa's Last Great Herds
Sibert medalist Sy Montgomery takes readers on a staggering, emotional journey alongside the greatest land migration on earth—that of the wildebeest across the Serengeti—to provide a you-are-there account of one of nature’s most fascinating occurrences. Montgomery explores the wonder of migration, asking questions like, how do migration patterns sculpt the environment? Why do animals migrate? And how do they know where to go?
With lyrical prose, abundant facts, and the inclusion of other species who undertake remarkable migrations, Montgomery makes a journey of thousands of miles fly by—but not without leaving its mark. Full color photography.

? "A splendid wildlife adventure skillfully conveyed."—Kirkus, STARRED review ? "Montgomery’s and Dr. Estes’passion for these astonishing animals makes this illuminating, information-rich account an adventure that may just inspire a gnu generation of ecological heroes."—Booklist, STARRED review ? "Montgomery may inspire some to visit the Serengeti personally, but for those who can't, The Magnificent Migration is the next best thing."—Shelf Awareness, STARRED review "Readers may feel as if they are in the hot and dusty Land Cruiser alongside our narrator....The Woods’ photographs, set off by the sharp book design, skillfully capture the sweeping landscapes, the diverse species of the region, and the people who live nearby and who study the animals.?"—The Horn Book —
