Midnight was hatched from an egg in a nest high in a tree overlooking the activities of FarAway Farm. FarAway Farm, where they grow "food, flowers and fun," is a summer camp in central Oklahoma where twenty-five girls, ages nine to twelve, come for two months of fun. There is swimming, archery, horseback riding and a lot of animals, picnics and games. Over it all, Midnight flutters about with his friends until he meets the "lady" who changes his life. Then the meddlesome Midnight almost changes the life of one of the campers.
