Synopsis: Birds repeatedly call an urgent message to twelve-year-old Claire Belle: Hurry! But she isn't listening, captivated with a famous ornithologist back from another failed effort to find the fabled Ivory-billed Woodpecker. Claire meets Robert Crawley at his Pennsylvania retreat and reveals to him her mysterious appeal to birds. Promising to attract the Ivory-bill, she earns a canoe expedition for herself and friends to the muddy bayous of Arkansas. But the bottomland forest conceals something more than the reclusive woodpecker, something dangerous. And though Claire leaves Pennsylvania, the message of the birds follows her.

Book Description Pinchey House Pr, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original. Language: English . Brand New Book. Twelve-year-old Claire Belle lives with her widowed mother who runs a small grocery from their country home in central Pennsylvania. An avid birder, Claire possesses an extraordinary ability to attract birds and daily engages with them during woodland hikes with her sheepdog. However, the birds have a message for her, one she can t yet hear. When Claire learns that an ornithologist, famous for pursuing the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, is to vacation at his nearby woodland retreat, she conspires with her best friend Victor to investigate his extravagant stone chateau. But hiding within this walled estate is a fugitive. Clyde Hollow, local drunk and deadbeat dad, is wanted for holding three adolescents at gunpoint: his son Billy and his two friends, Victor and Claire. Though all three had safely escaped, the ne er-do-well drunkard also escaped into hiding. Stumbling onto Hollow s hideout, Claire and Victor discover that Billy is now aiding his fugitive father. Claire wants to call the police, but Victor can t condone a betrayal of Billy and convinces her of an alternate plan. The situation becomes more complex when ornithologist Robert Crawley and his assistant arrive to the chateau. Claire meets Robert and becomes immediately infatuated with the handsome, charismatic ornithologist. His obsession for the Ivory-billed Woodpecker becomes hers. Increasingly intent on impressing him, she confides her ability to attract birds, something Robert personally witnesses on three separate occasions. Promising to attract the Ivory-bill, she earns a canoe expedition for herself and friends to the muddy bayous of the White River and Cache River National Wildlife Refuges in Arkansas. But the bottomland forest conceals something more than the reclusive woodpecker, something dangerous. And still the birds persist in their message, for the ordeal Claire is to face does not end in Arkansas. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9780982034224
