Graceful long-necked and long-legged birds who mate for life, cranes have fascinated many cultures. In Japan, they are a symbol of longevity and a happy marriage. In China, they are messengers of wisdom. Carl-Albrecht von Treuenfels has spent decades observing and photographing cranes, and in this dazzling collection, he offers overwhelming evidence why we must strive to ensure their survival. This beautiful volume includes maps depicting the birds’ flight routes; guides to where cranes can be seen in their natural habitats; and detailed information on how they live, their elaborate and noisy courting “dances,” how they nurture their young, and how they migrate each winter in V-shaped formations.
