Follow the inspiring journey with rejected Matica and the mighty condor Talon. Will she find what she desirers and love?
Journey with Matica in the TALON series. Be with her and feel her adventures, her near disasters, her laughter and tears. Enjoy the feeling of friendship, love and camaraderie she enjoys with her condors, Talon, Tamo and Tima.
For the best understanding of Matica and her adventures with the condors in Peru, I would recommend starting the series with book 1, Talon, Come Fly with Me. When you read book 1, you will be hooked and eager for the next. Read each book consecutively. By book 5, you will be very much a part of Matica’s family and intimately involved with the condors.
For some background, Matica lives with her family in Pucara, a remote village in Northern Peru near the Andes. Her parents, Crayn and Mira, are missionaries, who came from Peru to Australia. The Indians of Peru shunned Matica initially because she has a growth disability; at age 10, she was the size of a two-year old. Lonely and miserable, she made friends with a pair of condors, Tamo and Tima. Poachers stole Tima’s egg, but Matica and her father, Crayn, with the help of the condors, rescued the egg. Matica kept the egg warm, and when it hatched, baby Talon grew up in Matica’s household. After a spark from the kitchen fire scared Talon, Matica jumped on his back to calm him. Talon rushed out the door and flew with her on his back.
