I never used to like the wind. It rattled me inside. It frightened me because it meant change. Now I sit still and quiet, watching a restless winter wind blow through the trees. I welcome the wind. I w kw why I have this story to tell. So come with me to the headwaters of the river. Eaglet and the River is my story. When lightning strikes the nest of a young eagle, he tumbles into the rushing river below, injuring his wing. The current carries Eaglet downstream, where he meets various animals eager to help him get back home. A beaver puts a splint on Eaglet's wing, a group of mice carry him over a rocky path, and a large black bear gives him useful directions. As Eaglet travels from the headwaters to the sea, his wing heals, and he learns some important lessons by following the advice of his new river friends. Yet he longs to return home to the warmth and security of his nest, and to be with his mother, father, and sister again. Will Eaglet be able to find home, or will the dangers of the wild be too much? An engaging, inspirational story, Eaglet and the River will charm young and old alike.
