The Sierra Club's publishing program for children is intended to bring to young people books about the earth, its creatures, and humankind's role among them. Sierra Club Books for Children offer responsible information about the environment to young readers, with attention to the poetry and magic in nature that so fascinated and inspired John Muir, the poet-philosopher who was the Sierra Club's founder. Covering a wide range of genres--from naturel history to fiction--these books look at the world with the eyes of the young, exploring and probing the little-known from starting places close to home. If you like this book, ask your bookseller or librarian for others in this unique program.

From the Inside Flap:

With their piercing eyes and powerful wings, raptors--hawks, eagles, owls, and other birds of prey--command humans' respect and awe. Yet because of people's carelessness, along with the everyday perils of field and forest, these magnificent birds are sometimes injured or orphaned.

Those fortunate enough to be found near the Vermont Raptor Center--and other places like it around the country--get expert help. In the capable and caring hands of volunteers such as young Hannah Regier, many of these birds are nursed back to health and eventually released.

In this engaging photo essay, author-photographer Stephen R. Swinburne takes readers behind the scenes at the center. Through Hannah's eyes, readers will gain a new appreciation for these fascinating birds and will share her quiet satisfaction when they are able to return to the wild.
