This beautifully illustrated children's book partially re-tells the story of Oksi which was originally told from Frightful's perspective, but also continues on after Oksi's return from migrating. It was always an unlikely story, but it's a neat way to teach children about nature, conservation, and protection of wildlife. Geared for younger children, but the illustrations are beautiful and it has interesting information about Peregrine falcons.

This is a short picture book with a story basically.a follow-up to the chapter books: "My Side of the Mountain," "The Far Side of the Mountain" and "Frightful's Mountain." A must read if you've read those. Cute. spectacular.
touching story with superb illustrations
A good story about peregrine falcons. I enjoyed the story. It is sad to me that people will harvest birds and sell them on the black market. Birds of prey are my favorite. Nice book good pictures!
This series continuation should have granted more than a picture-book.
Great Book. Got to read it if you like birds.
Jacob really likes the way Jean Craighead George writes.
