Selected by Indie Booksellers for the May 2010 Indie Notables
“An Eagle Named Freedom is a book that will make your heart soar. It is a first person account of a volunteer working in an animal rehabilitation center who nurses an eaglet, who will never be able to fly because of serious injuries to his wing, back to health and their special bond- one that will later support him in his own journey back to health from a life threatening illness. The book affirms the spiritual connections that we share with animals. It is also a testimony to the importance of being respectful of the wildness in birds and animals so they can live their lives fully. Inspirational, informative and fun, An Eagle Named Freedom is a joy to read.”
-- Fran Keilty, Hickory Stick Bookshop, Washington Depot, CT


Description

From the moment Jeff Guidry saw the baby eagle with broken wings, his life was changed. For weeks he and the staff at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center tended to the grievously injured bird. Miraculously, she recovered. And after Jeff was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2000, Freedom returned his gift. While undergoing chemotherapy, the time Jeff spent with Freedom soothed his spirit and gave him the strength to fight. When he learned he was cancer free, he shared his news on a walk with Freedom. Somehow this special bird seemed to understand the significance of the day; for the first time, she wrapped both her wings around Jeff in an avian hug.

In March 2008, Jeff shared his extraordinary experience in an email to a friend that would unexpectedly circle the globe and inspire countless fans. In An Eagle Named Freedom, Jeff tells the full story of his bond with Freedom and introduces the other wildlife and volunteers who have been saved by Sarvey. A tender tale of hope, love, trust, and life, this true story is an affirmation of the spiritual connection that humans and animals share.
