I loved this book. It teaches but is full of humor especially towards the son. He becomes Lady's enemy in her eyes while his dad is her mate especially during egg laying season. When the family goes house hunting it is funny as the wife explains what they need for the eagle. She'll be happy with two baths. It is a quick read but informative and humorous and shows golden eagles in a way most of us have not seen.
I also soar in gliders and frequently have hawks, vultures and seagulls sharing and circling in the same thermal I would be flying in. I never cease to marvel at their beauty and total grace and ease in the air. Seeing an eagle close up is really something. This book just brings the eagle to life.
Note that the kindle version appears to place all the pictures at the end while in the book it appears after several different sections. In this case it is much easier to flip back and forth in the actual book. A very small nitpick to an overall great experience both kindle and actual book.
If you like this book you will also love "Wesley the Owl".
P.S. Another reviewer mentioned that the book is out of print. You can still get it along with the DVD here: [...]
Any I remember the son and held a grudge as long as he did. I especially liked the way the. man took the time to study the eagle and was able to find him a possible mate before letting him go.
