Based on the migration of a real peregrine falcon that was tracked by satellite telemetry, this book follows the world's fastest bird on her annual migration from Alaska to Argentina.

THE PEREGRINE’S JOURNEY vividly describes one of the most remarkable feats in the animal kingdom. Beginning in Alaska and ending two months later in Argentina, the peregrine falcon’s annual migration is an 8,000-mile flight across the Americas. This beautifully illustrated book allows young readers to follow one bird on its journey. Along the way, the peregrine hunts pigeons in Seattle, Washington, flies through the night over the Gulf of Mexico, narrowly escapes becoming prey to a great horned owl in Bolivia, and more. Based on the actual migration of a real peregrine that was tracked by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the book is filled with amazing facts about the bird’s diet, habits, and navigational abilities, as well as stunning views of the many habitats the peregrine visits along the way.
