Raptor Rescue!  An Eagle Flies Free
By Silvia A. Johnson

From the book Jacket:
A conservation officer discovers a wounded bald eagle, lying in a ditch by 
the side of the road. The bird has been shot in the left wing. Unable to fly 
after food, it is close to death. But the officer knows just what to do. 
Within a few hours, a new patient is undergoing emergency surgery at the 
world-renowned Gabbert Raptor Center, located at the University of 

Here is an unusual behind-the-scenes exploration of a rehabilitation center 
for injured birds of prey. Crisp, arresting photos and an engaging text 
follow the story of a raptor's recovery-from admission, X ray, and surgery 
through recuperation, flight therapy, and release.

Young nature lovers will enjoy this fascinating introduction to the work of 
the center's veterinary and volunteer staff and to the raptors 
themselves-among the most beautiful, remarkable, and, in some cases, 
threatened of wild creatures.
