A fabulous story that reads a bit like Marley and me, but Freedom (the eagle) does not die at the end!

It's sometimes funny -- the antics of this eagle and other animals at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center are a riot -- it's also sometimes sad -- the abuse some of these animals have suffered, the challenges faced by the people and animals in this book, but most importantly, it's inspiring -- the friendship and trust between Freedom and Jeff Guidry is unbelievable.

It reminds me of the bond created between me and my friend, Pam's dog, Abby, after Pam first got her. I had her on the floor of the passenger seat between my legs -- she had never ridden in a car before and really did not know Pam & I. I kept petting her and telling her it was going to be okay -- we formed a bond that day and it is still there 13 years later.

Note: Keep the kleen-ex close by.
