"Nothing in the world prepares you for an eagle leaping to your arm," says the author of this moving memoir. When Brenda Cox found Ichabod, a ten-week-old female bald eagle blown out of her nest, a profound relationship began. Cox experienced many exhilarating moments and more than a few close calls during the time she trained the bird for falconry and forged a deep bond with one of the most beautiful and elusive creatures. This story recalls that unusual relationship which spanned eight years.
Brenda Cox studied biology and geography at Simon Fraser University, where she spent eight years as a supervisor at a wildlife sanctuary. Brenda currently lives in Surrey, British Columbia.
