Science, nature, and adventure come together in this riveting account of a solo bike trip along the migratory path of the monarch butterfly. Sara Dykman made history when she became the first person to bicycle alongside monarch butterflies on their storied annual migration-a round-trip adventure that included three countries and more than 10,000 miles. Equally remarkable, she did it solo, on a bike cobbled together from used parts. In Bicycling with Butterflies-praised as “poetic” (Publishers Weekly) and called “a collective cry for climate action” (Booklist)-Dykman recounts her incredible journey. We’re beside her as she navigates unmapped roads in foreign countries, checks roadside milkweed for monarch eggs, and shares her passion with eager schoolchildren, skeptical bar patrons, and unimpressed border officials. We also meet some of the ardent monarch stewards who supported her efforts, from citizen scientists and researchers to farmers and high-rise city dwellers. With both humor and humility, Dykman offers a compelling story, confirming the urgency of saving the threatened monarch migration-and the other threatened systems of nature that affect the survival of us all. AUTHOR: Sara Dykman divides her time among seasonal amphibian research, outdoor education, and adventures. She created to connect students to her adventures in order to foster lifelong learners, boundary pushers, explorers, and stewards. SELLING POINTS: . To raise awareness about the decline of monarch buttefly population, Dykman embarked on a solo bike trip more than 10,000 miles long. In this compelling read, she shares her journey, deftly explains the science of migration, and emphasises the importance of these beneficial butterflies . The plight of the monarch butterflies continues to be a major concern and a topic in national media outlets. This paperback release is timed to the Spring migration, which happens from March to June . Hardcover edition was the winner of the 2021 National Outdoor Book Award 1 map
