Crow Medicine

Overview

In the exciting Jane Ray's Wildlife Rescue series, reluctant heroine Jane Ray comes face to face with the challenges and rewards of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. Packed with fascinating facts and interactive resources, including volunteer opportunities and animal rescue tips, the series is sure to delight animal lovers everywhere.

Crow Medicine opens under the impending threat of West Nile virus. Jane's favorite animals at the Urban Wildlife Rescue Centre (UWRC) are the juvenile crows -- mischievous tricksters with blue-black feathers and an appetite for all that sparkles. But the inexplicable deaths of crows in the city, public fear and media frenzy culminate in the UWRC's policy to euthanize all crows admitted to it, in order to protect staff and volunteers from the deadly disease. Torn between her love for the crows and her loyalty to the UWRC, Jane sets out on a quest to bring a controversial vaccine back over the Rocky Mountains -- in time, she hopes, to save the birds.

Crow Medicine features natural history, facts about the West Nile virus and Native mythology within the context of an action-packed adventure.
