Seabirds evoke the spirit of the earth’s wildest places. They spend large portions of their lives at sea, often far from land, and nest on beautiful and remote islands that humans rarely visit. Thanks to the development of increasingly sophisticated and miniaturised devices that can track their every movement and behaviour, it is now possible to observe the mysterious lives of these remarkable creatures as never before. This beautifully illustrated book takes you on a breathtaking journey around the globe to reveal where these birds actually go when they roam the sea, the tactics they employ to traverse vast tracts of ocean, the strategies they use to evade threats, and more.

Featuring illustrations by renowned artist Bruce Pearson and packed with intriguing facts, Far from Land provides an extraordinary up-close look at the activities of seabirds.

‘Knowledge about the lives of seabrids has taken a quantum leap in the past two decades, with technological advances providing details of seabird activity when they are far from land.  Brooke’s book engagingly discusses how these recent findings have transformed our understanding of seabird natural history.’  George Divoky, Founder and Director of Friends of Cooper Island
