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


With the emotional intensity of A Lion Named Christian and the charm of Alex & Me, this is the inspiring story of a dedicated man who lovingly nursed a young eaglet with two broken wings back to health-and how this majestic bird later inspired him to triumph over his own life-threatening condition.

Praise For An Eagle Named Freedom

"Listeners will never believe that narrator John Pruden didn't himself fall in love with this beautiful bird of prey. The way he tells of the two beings—one bird, one human, each bringing freedom from peril to the other—sounds as intimate as life itself." ---AudioFile
