Miriam Darlington sets out to tell a new story of the night hunter that has captivated the human imagination for millennia.

Her fieldwork begins with wild encounters in the British Isles, on the owl walks she takes with her son Benji. From here, she seeks to identify every European species of owl on a journey that will take her from southern Spain through France, Serbia and Finland, and to the frosted borders of the Arctic. Along the way, Benji succumbs to a mysterious illness, and her quest soon becomes entangled with the search for his cure. In her watching and deep listening to owls, Darlington separates myth from reality and brings the strangeness and magnificence of these creatures to life.
