When the sci­ence jour­nal­ist trav­eled to Alaska to re­search her

first book, The Hid­den Lives of Owls, she wasn’t quite pre­pared for bit­ing winds and freez­ing tem­per­a­tures in the mid­dle of sum­mer. But it was worth it to see the bright white snowy owls, “which stick out like a bea­con against the brown tun­dra.” She re­vis­its the mag­nif­i­cent an­i­mals in “Flight of the Hunter” (p. 38). Calvez’s sec­ond book, The Breath of a Whale, will be out next year.
