In The Private Eye we learn about snow geese through the eyes of Native people, scientists, artists, hunters, and farmers. Yup'ik Eskimo Charles Hunt harvests snow geese along the Yukon River delta each fall, continuing a subsistence way of life that has existed for millennia. Russian, Canadian, and U.S. scientists track the movements of the geese each spring and fall, banding, sexing, counting, and precisely monitoring the activities of these beautiful birds. Robert Bateman provides an artist's view of nature and relates how his curiosity led him to join a camp set up at a remote nesting site.

... the passionate story of her involvement with these geese who summer in the remote north of Siberia and winter on the deltas of the Fraser and Skagit rivers, as well as a strong sense of the geese within their environment, and a never-diminished sense of involvement....A wonderful read. (4 stars)
The Milestones Review, Books for the Interior, Fall/Winter

an interesting, sometimes poetic, factual narrative combined with an introduction to some of the natural history of a local species....occasionally Snow Goose behaviour is described in sufficient detail for me to recognize similarities with Konrad Lorenz's greylag geese in the classic Here am I. Where are You?
