Swifts live in perpetual summer. They inhabit the air like nothing on the planet. They watched the continents shuffle to their present places and the mammals evolve. They are not ours, though we like to claim them. They defy all our categories and present no passports as they surf the winds across the worlds. In this radical new look at the Common Swift, Charles Foster follows the swifts throughout the world, manically, lyrically, yet scientifically.
