This is the amazing story of Ffion Rees and the peregrine falcon she rescued from the sea off the remote coast of west Wales. It's the story of how Ffion nursed the Falcon back to life and back to the wild, and about the bond which grew between the two. The story is told by international author and illustrator Jackie Morris, a friend of Ffion, who also lives in this remote part of Pembrokeshire, west Wales. Jackie describes the risks, triumphs, and above all the trust which developed between the pair and which formed the basis of the falcon's path to back to health and back to the freedom of the wild. Beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, sketches, and magnificent paintings in watercolor and gold leaf by Jackie Morris. A must for birdwatchers, art lovers, and romantics alike.
