Vane-Wrights passion for his subject shines through, from his vivid descriptions of metamorphosis to his look at the diversity of butterflies. He investigates the mystery of butterfly migrations by following the travels of the North American monarch, which summers as far north as Canada but winters in Mexico and Southern California. Looking forward, he questions what the future holds for these delicate creatures as they face changing environments.
