This story was recommended by a friend who knows the author. It is Jeff Guidry's ten-year story of his friendship with an eagle named Freedom, who Guidry met when he started volunteering at the Sarvey Wildlife Center in Arlington, WA. It is touching and sometimes leads to tears, but also uplifting as Guidry describes animal rescues and the dedicated folks who rescue and care for the animals which other people has often mismanaged or abandoned. There were a few disconnects for me, such as numerous comments about Native Americans and their connection with animals (or "the wild ones" as Guidry calls them), but a bit more information about those connections would've been nice. Overall it was a nice story but it just didn't grab me.

Although the story provided insight into the relationship between Freedon and the author, I didn't find the writing to be very original. It sort of felt like it was written for a young reader (i.e., elementary school).

I purchased this book after watching the short clip of Jeff and Freedom on this site. Moved, I wanted to know how this event came to pass, and while Jeff shared this tale beautifully, he actually gave much more. Jeff and Freedom and the committment/caring/healing/communication that they share were central to the tale, but the book as a whole also encompassed the tales of the larger group of unique and incredible individuals that provided the setting in which Jeff and Freedom came together. This was an amazing look into the lives and experiences of some enlightened and caring individuals and the 'wild ones' who intersected with them to share some portion of their respective journies together. Jeff Guidry shares the very rare and incredible gift that he has been given, but it is easy to see that he earned every bit of that and more. It was a great joy to read about the better parts of humanity as they reached even greater heights and how the vastness of nature opened up to these efforts and responded in kind.

I'm a sucker for animal stories so, of course, the picture of a magnificent eagle (along with author Jeff Guidry) that adorns this book jacket drew my attention immediately. What I received upon reading this book more than I bargained for. I not only learned about wild animal rescue, but I also entered the private world of Jeff Guidry. The story he tells is simple in words but profound in experience. It traverses the spiritual world, the customs of Native Americans, and the companionship of individuals who devote their lives to helping wild animals in distress. In a sudden bout of misfortune, Guidry also tells of being diagnosed with cancer and having to endure its gruesome treatment. I marveled at how an eagle named Freedom became the symbol of life for the author. Maybe I'm a bit too sensitive, but I was getting teary-eyed at both the happy parts of this book as well as the sad parts. I loved the color photographs of the more interesting "patients" (and their humans) at the Sarvey Wildlife Care Center in Washington State. My only wish for this book would have been to have the few specific animal terms (for example: bating, green, flight--when used to mean a cage) explained when first used. To animal lovers and those who respect the natural order of the world, I must say that you're in for a treat with what Guidry has chosen to share. My hope is that this book will evoke your compassion and a bit more understanding of wild animals and help you to make some good decisions should you encounter any wild animals in distress in the future. In the meantime, grab a hankie and begin to read. (My copy of this book was from the Early Reviewers program at LibraryThing)
