From the Publisher:

Tango in America is a dramatic story for young adult readers based on the real life plight of wild Quaker parakeets in the U.S.A. Its action and setting are closely based on the real-life habits of these wild birds, which were imported from Argentina to North America, escaped from captivity, and now live in urban areas of New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachussets, Rhode Island, Florida, Texas, and many other states. One of the parrots' real-life heroes, Chicago’s Mayor Harold Washington, who protected them from harm in the 1980’s, plays a key role in the story.

Tango in America is also a coming-of-age story about a young bird in search of her lost father. As Tango crosses the country, she learns about the value of teamwork from a group of wild ducks, the value of generosity when she helps a captive parrot to fly, the value of altruism when he is injured, and the value of courage when she outwits a feral cat. She also discovers the depths of her own artistic talents when a group of wild crows insist that she sing for them. By the time she meets her long-lost father in Chicago, she has grown up, gained confidence, and is ready to accept the challenges of a young adult.

From the Author:

After I discovered that there were wild parrots flying free in many urban areas of the United States and spent time studying their habits in the wild, my imagination was engaged by their story, which in a sense strongly parallels the struggle of many immigrants to our shores. Derided as "illegal avian invaders," hounded by utility companies and Fish and Wildlife services, and referred to in ornithological literature as "the world's most persecuted parrot," these charming, social avians captured my heart, and I wanted to share some of the joy I felt with young readers.
