Luck: The Story of a Sandhill Crane
by Jean Craighead George

Renowned collaborators Jean Craighead George and Wendell Minor turn their astounding talents to the exploration of a fascinating creature.

Luck follows the long migration north to Siberia of a young sandhill crane rescued from a six-pack holder in the Texas marsh by the girl who names him. Though the birds depend on natural landmarks to find their way, Luck also memorizes human evidence, including the girl's blue sunglasses, that will ultimately bring him back to his home, along with his new mate. The story unfolds with humor and awe at the miraculous journey these creatures undertake, while providing an instructive exploration of migration patterns, animal conservation and the human-wildlife connection.
