Deborah Cramer traveled from the tip of South America up into the Arctic, accompanying a shorebird – the Red Knot – along one of earth’s longest avian migrations. Along the way, she witnessed the birds’ extraordinary relationship with the horseshoe crab, an ancient animal that comes ashore once a year to lay its eggs in the sand. Join Deborah to explore how our health and the health of shorebirds and horseshoe crabs are intertwined, and the increasing importance of Massachusetts in this story.

Deborah is the author of The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, An Ancient Crab, and An Epic Journey, which received the Best Book Award from the U.S. National Academies of Science and the Rachel Carson Book Award from the Society of Environmental Journalists. She lives at the edge of the Great Marsh, walking through the dunes, and kayaking in its bays and tidal creeks as often as she can. Perhaps you have read her articles in Audubon, heard her on NPR, or seen her essays in the New York Times.
