"Jean Craighead George returns her readers to the "one mountain among thousands" and the "one tree among millions" where Sam Gribley has been living with his peregrine falcon, Frightful. As Frightful is pulled between her instincts and the world she has come to know with Sam, George displays her expertise at creating a suspenseful story of the natural world while engagingly incorporating a wealth of information about falcons. Jeff Woodman is an unpretentious narrator who moves skillfully through a host of characters--including Sam, falcon poachers, crusading students, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife officers. He is masterful as Frightful, her mates, and the offspring of several broods. Hearing falcon calls brings the peregrines to life as characters in the drama in a way that seeing the calls on the printed page could never do. Listen to this story! A.R.
