About the Book:
Each year tiny sand pipers red knots under take a near miraculous 19,000 mile journey from one end of the earth to the other and back. In this firsthand account, Deborah Cramer accompanies them on their extraordinary odyssey along the length of two continents, tracking birds from remote Tierra del Fuego to the icy Arctic.
On the full moon of springs highest tides, she seeks out horseshoe crabs, ancient, primordial animals whose eggs are essential to migrating shorebirds, and whose blue blood, unbeknownst to most people, safeguards human health.
"The Narrow Edge" offers unique insight into how the lives of humans, red knots and horseshoe crabs are intertwined, and is an inspiring portrait of loss and resilience, of the tenacity of birds, and the courage of the many people who, bird by bird and beach by beach, keep red knots flying.
About the Author:
Deborah Cramer lives with her family at the edge of a salt marsh in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where each year she awaits the arrival of horseshoe crabs and alewives in tidal creeks, and the passage of migrating sandpipers and herons. She writes about science, nature, and the environment, and is a visiting scholar at MIT.
Cramer has written three books, "Great Waters: An Atlantic Passage," "Smithsonian Ocean: Our Water Our World," and "The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey."
She has lectured about her writing and the sea on both sides of the Atlantic, at science and maritime museums, environmental and teachers organizations, and undergraduate and graduate schools in oceanography and journalism.
Her writing has most recently appeared in the Boston Globe and on the op-ed page of the New York Times. The Narrow Edge received, the book category, the 2016 Reed Award for Environmental Writing from the Southern Environmental Law Center.
