Snow geese spend their summers in the Canadian Arctic, on the tundra.  Each autumn they migrate south, to Delaware, California and the Gulf of Mexico.  In the spring they fly north again.  William Fiennes decided to go with them and to write about his travels.  What he produced turned out to be about very much more than geese. It is a blend of autobiography and reportage, its subject was also about homecoming.  The joy of being alive, of being on the move and - above all - of returning home, is poignantly captured in this intelligent, exuberant book, a debut of great delicacy and distinction.
