Full Synopsis
Harrowing journeys of animals and plants—fleeing skyrocketing temperatures—reported from the frontlines of the greatest migration of species since the Ice Age.

As humans accelerate global warming while laying waste to the environment, animals and plants must flee to the margins: on scattered nature reserves, between major highways, or among urban sprawl. And when even these places become too hot and inhospitable, wildlife is left with only one path to survival: an often-formidable journey toward the poles as they race to find a new home in a warming world. Tropical zones lose their inhabitants, beavers settle in Alaska, and gigantic shoals of fish disappear—just to reappear along foreign coastlines.

Award-winning environmental journalist Benjamin von Brackel traces these awe-inspiring journeys and celebrates the remarkable resilience of species around the world. But the lengths these plants and animals must go to avoid extinction are as alarming as they are inspirational: Sea animals—like fish—move on average forty-five miles a decade to cooler regions, while land animals—like beavers and butterflies—move eleven miles. As even the poles of the Earth heat up, we're left with a stark and irreversible choice: Halt the climate emergency now, or face a massive die-off of species, who are increasingly left with nowhere else to go.

"Beyer makes the creation of wildflower meadows to serve as bee pathways sound idyllic. He sounds as amazed as the listener feels when he tells of orchids being planted at higher elevations." ---AudioFile
