About this book

This is the amazing story of a peregrine falcon rescued from the sea off the remote coast of west Wales. Jackie Morris tells the story of how her friend Ffion Rees nursed the Falcon back to life and back to the wild – it's about the bond which grew between the two. The story is told by international author and illustrator Jackie Morris, who lives in this remote part of Pembrokeshire, in west Wales.

Jackie describes the risks, triumphs and above all the trust which developed between the pair and which formed the basis of the falcon's path to back to health and back to the freedom of the wild. Beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, sketches and magnificent paintings by Jackie. A must for birdwatchers, art lovers and romantics alike.

Media reviews

"Queen of the Sky is a truly unusual and beautiful book – a unique blend of stunning art, accomplished photography and fascinating narrative. The overall effect is actually very moving – a wonderful celebration of the precious bond between human kind and the natural world."
– Bel Mooney

"One of the most beautiful books I have ever held."
– John Lewis-Stempel

"Queen of the Sky is a wonderful book (I confess it made me cry), weaving text, paintings, and photographs with wind and waves, feather and fur. It's a story about friendship – between women, between species; and a story about the land, and love, and loss."
– Terri Windling

"Queen of the Sky is a book by Jackie Morris that confounds all rules, and satisfies all senses, drawing us into a personal and intimate story of love and freedom [...] and a bird. I hardly knew where to begin [...] the words? the photos? the illustrations?"
– James Mayhew
