This is a publication made within the framework of Searching for the European Roller. Including archival material, photographs (both found and new), notes and thoughts, the publication begins its journey on Fårö in 1968 and continues through time and place toward southern latitudes in a search and understanding of a bird’s disappearance and departure.
