From landing on just-thawed lakes in spring to raise their chicks, until they migrate to ocean waters in the fall, loons enchant us with their haunting calls and black and white plumage.
Diving, swimming, fishing, raising their chicks are portrayed through Yvona Fast’s lyrical poems and Dr. Nina Schoch’s stunning photos.
Fun science facts accompany each poem and photo, providing scientific information about loon calls, diving abilities, fishing skills, and how they raise their chicks.
Watch this spot for information on the upcoming book release for Loon Summer by Yvona Fast at the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation.

Yvona Fast and Dana Fast , authors of Good in the Midst of Evil
After a daring escape from the Warsaw ghetto, 11-year old Lilka is torn away from her family. With a name change and new identity papers, her life becomes a masquerade. She must learn to act the role of a Catholic girl living in the Polish country, a role she's not familiar with or prepared for. Will she succeed?
Dana’s message for many years has been that it has been unfair to deny the heroism of many Poles who risked their own lives as well as the lives of their families. In her memoirs she describes the individuals who helped her find Good in the Midst of Evil.
