TALON, COME FLY WITH ME-GISELA SIDLEMAYER
An amazing story of a little girl with a disability who befriended and trained condors and raised their baby. Matica has a growth impediment. She and her family live in Peru. The Indians don’t understand her disability and either tease her or shun her altogether. This keeps up until she saves the condors egg from poachers. She is deemed a hero and suddenly accepted by the villagers. Matica raises the baby condor to the amazement of the Peruvian Indians and her parents.
Gisela Sedlmayer weaves a tale so compelling that it is hard to put down. TALON, COME FLY WITH ME will appeal to children and adults alike. I enjoyed the story immensely and await a sequel. She personifies the large birds so that the other characters can communicate with them. It is brilliant writing and give this story 5 condor talons.
