“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.”
