"Miss Patchett knows more about wedgetail eagles than most anybody else in the world. The first twenty years of her life were spent in the Australian bush, where she developed a passionate interest in the wildlife of her country. Using this knowledge, she has drawn a picture of a bush family living amidst the haggard and spectral beauty of a wild country. She has also written a tribute to the magnificent eagles who come to possess the life of Lanny, a lonely young boy. He loves them more than his own being and eventually his ambition to train a young bird is achieved. The young eaglet, Yarak, not only hunts from his wrist, but grows to love his young master with an extraordinary gentleness, so strangely at odds with his strength and steely plumage."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
