Overview

"In secret the Giver made a new land by gathering together many of the shards of the Maker's first egg. Some pieces had lowlands and tropical forests. Others had evergreen ­mountains and gorges filled with wild rivers. Still others rose up in terrible volcanoes. The Giver then placed the new land far away from all the other islands and gifted it to birds for their own, free from predators."

For thousands of full-rounds birds have lived peacefully in the Given Land. On their ­secluded island, they have evolved a unique culture, with ­Walkers and Flyers both living without fear of Four-Feet-and-Fur.

But now the Four-Feet-and-Fur known as koretake have discovered them. Driven from his home, Eldest with Feathers ­reluctantly leads the kiwi Waro on a mission to deliver the news of the invasion to the capital city of Marahau. With ­koretake dogging their footsteps, the Walkers undertake a daunting journey ­spanning the length of the Given Land-a journey that will end only in a ­shattering confrontation on the Plains of Marahau.

Let the birds of the Given Land take you on a journey unlike any you've ever enjoyed.
