Poetic text and stunning paintings tell the story of a wood thrush that makes the long migration between New England and Central America. At each end of the journey is a boy who watches and waits, protecting the bird's nesting place until it returns. Neither boy knows that his love of the thrush's sweet song links himlike a brotherto another boy across the world, a boy who doesn't even speak the same language.
Includes an author's note that details wood thrush migration and habitat protection.
