Many of us can't travel outside our own neighborhoods without a GPS, so how do animals know where they are going? There's a stunning diversity of animal navigators out there, often using senses and skills that we humans do not possess. Weaving interviews with experts on animal behavior with the discoveries of Nobel Prize winning neuroscientists, David Barrie's eye-opening book—also published as Incredible Journeys—introduces dung beetles that steer by the light of the Milky Way; sea turtles and moths that find their way using the Earth's magnetic field; salmon that return to their birthplace by following their noses; and birds that locate their nests on a tiny island after crossing an entire ocean.
