Rock musician Jeff Guidry's memoir, "An Eagle Called Freedom," is a heartwarming and, at times, heartbreaking tale of his work at the Sarvey Wildlife Conservation Center.

Guidry develops a special relationship with Freedom, an eagle whose wings are broken so badly that she is unable to fly once they heal. He cares for her on a regular basis and they develop a mutual respect and understanding. Guidry credits Freedom, in part, for him overcoming cancer as she gave him something to live for -- the healing is mutual.

Guidry writes lovingly about other creatures at Sarvey, his friends and colleagues working to help the wild ones in their care and, in most cases, return the rehabilitated animals to their natural habitat. There are some heartbreaking moments, as special animals pass on, but the overall respect for the creatures shown by all at Sarvey show incredible empathy and concern.

Highly recommended for those who loved "A Lion Named Christian" and similar memoirs.
