The Narrow Edge
A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey

Reed Environmental Writing Award

Following the extraordinary migration of red knots from the tip of South America to the northern arctic tundra, the author discovers how the tiny bird’s fate entwines with the horseshoe crab’s—and with our own. She makes an eloquent plea to protect the vital strand where land meets sea.
