The sandpiper weighs 60 gm. and has a wingspan of only 43 cm., but flies more than 5,000 km. at a speed of up to 177 km. per hour. Every autumn it leaves a Norwegian summer to find warmer climes somewhere in Africa. Where do they go? How do they know the way?
Vi flyr sørover is an unassuming picture book with beautiful and wonderful pictures from nature. Drawn and written by Max Estes who manages to show a new and different view of nature in Norway.
We’re Flying South is a book suitable for reflective reading on one of these autumn days as the birds fly over the roofs on their way to the horizon.'
