Review:

*** Thanks to the Women's Literary Cafe for the review copy! ***

"The boy who flew with eagles" is about a boy named Naa'ki, who was carried away by a giant Mother Eagle as food.  After making a deal with the Eagle, that he would feed the eaglets and the Mother Eagle by catching fish, Mother Eagle lets Naa'ki live.  While in his time with the eagles, Naa'ki learns so much about the problems of other animals.  Also, he asks the Mother Eagle to teach him how to fly.  After some attempts, Naa'ki learns their techniques about flying.  With the new found knowledge about flying and about the importance of the lives of the forest, Naa'ki sets out to his village to share with his populace.  I don't want to put in more spoilers to the readers..so, please read the ending for yourself.

The author has a beautiful message to the readers.  For all to live, we must share.  We, humans, have exploited so many resources, that Mother Nature has provided  us without any questions.  Its time for us to think, for once, wisely and know about the conservation of resources.  Personally, this message should be out in the world for everyone to read and learn.

The illustrations, that are in each chapter, are so apt and speak volumes.  The book is recommended to everyone - kids or adults.  A great read and an awesome leason!
