Description
Critically acclaimed novelist Louise Erdrich weaves a tale about a quirky grandmother who unexpectedly sails away from her family, leaving behind warm memories and her room's few belongings -- including her collection of birds' nests. One year after Grandmother's departure, three eggs in one of the nests miraculously begin to hatch and out pops a breed of passenger pigeon long thought to be extinct. When too many visiting scientists threaten the three hatchling' freedom, Grandmother's family take matters into their own hands.
