Product Overview

The yellow butterfly's journey begins in the Yucatan rain forest. From there it wings its way across the sea to reach the shores of North America. This butterfly, whose common name is cloudless sulphur, may travel as far as New England, a distance of more than 2,000 miles. The journey is hard. The butterfly must overcome dangers on land and water, from hungry lizards to stormy seas. Though it is a delicate creature, it has the strength to make the migration north. Some cloudless sulphurs on the east coast fly as far north as New England while those on the west coast may migrate all the way to Yellowstone National Park. Stephen Swinburne and Bruce Hiscock, creators of Turtle Tide: The Ways of Sea Turtles, follow the trail of one particular yellow butterfly, a butterfly with a notch on its wing. With lyrical prose and stunning illustrations, here is a story of one of nature's spectacular events: the migration of the yellow butterfly.
