Snow Geese (Picador)
The Snow Geese is William Fiennes’s first book; a blend of autobiography, reportage and natural science that follows the remarkable journey of migrating Snow Geese. Fiennes follows the snow geese on their long journey home to the Canadian Artic, from Delaware, California and the Gulf of Mexico, writing not only of the geese, but of the grace of homecomings and the strange gravity that home exerts.
