Bicycling with Butterflies
Over the past 20 years, the monarch butterfly population has fallen by nearly 90%. To help spread awareness about the issue, and to prove to herself that she was capable of such a physical challenge, outdoor educator Sara Dykman took her hand-built bike on a 10,000 mile-long journey along the trail of the monarch migration. She shares her story of this journey in Bicycling with Butterflies, a well-written mix of adventure story and nature writing that explores what is causing the decline and we we can do to help. Readers will experience the ups and down Dykman faces on the trail, join in her awe at the wonders of the natural world, and meet the citizen scientists she comes across along the way.
