This book documents Hengst's traveling public art installation. Since 2008, Hengst has been "landing" her porcelain birds in public spaces around the world.  The birds contain text and imagery relating to war, peace and personal histories. The book includes essays by both Hengst and Henry Shukman.  The birds have landed in over sixty locations, including Central Park and the UN Headquarters in NY, many locations in Santa Fe, beaches along the coast of California, the National Mall in Washington D.C., Chartres Cathedral in France, the weapons development site of Peenemünde, Germany, and have migrated as far as the Galapagos Islands.
