From the Publisher“The story is great … Saving Eagle Mitch makes clear what should be obvious: The impetus to do right by our fellow creatures is not limited to saints or wildlife rehabilitators … Most especially, Saving Eagle Mitch is about people working together. One person does not save a critter; there are always more involved.” — Release: The Quarterly Newsletter of the New York State Wildlife Rehabilitation Council, Inc.
“[Eagle Mitch’s] journey is an amazing tale, a mission of utmost importance, a symbol of greater good and integral to the morale and spirits of the servicemen in a godless war torn place. Barbara’s front row seat and essential involvement in this process makes for good reading.” — San Francisco Book Review
“Barbara Chepaitis, the author of the book, is also its heroine although she might not think of herself in that exact term … She is devoted to her cause and is knowledgeable and concerned as well … Chepaitis’s storytelling skills are equal to the task at hand. There is a vividness to her recounting telephone, mail and email exchanges … This book is heart-warming.” — Berkshire Eagle
“When Barbara Chepaitis contacted my office and asked for assistance to save an eagle in Afghanistan, it was certainly unusual. But after listening to her recount the rescue of Mitch the Eagle by US Navy SEALs, and how much it would mean to our brave service members to ensure his safety, I knew I had to help. And I could think of no better permanent home for Mitch than in the Berkshire Bird Paradise in upstate New York. From the State Department, to USDA, to the Fish and Wildlife Service, we enlisted multiple agencies to make this happen. And like the Navy SEALs who protected Mitch, it was teamwork that forged our success. We know our military is brave, but Mitch reminds us of their compassion, too.” — Senator Charles E. Schumer
