“I LOVE this book! As a veterinarian who practices throughout the Yukon and Alaska, I care for many wild animals, including bald eagles. This story of rescue and the instinct to not only survive, but get back to the wild, really hithome and inspired me again to do more for animals who need our help. This is a perfect story to read together witha budding animal lover or veterinarian in your family—you will learn about animals, be amazed and inspired, andnever forget Fuzzy!”
