This is a compact, A5 edition of Queen of the Sky by Jackie Morris.
The amazing story of a peregrine falcon rescued from the sea off the remote coast of west Wales. Jackie Morris tells the story of how her friend Ffion Rees nursed the Falcon back to life and back to the wild – it’s about the bond which grew between the two. The story is told by international author and illustrator Jackie Morris, who lives in this remote part of Pembrokeshire, in west Wales.
Jackie describes the risks, triumphs and above all the trust which developed between the pair and which formed the basis of the falcon’s path to back to health and back to the freedom of the wild. Beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, sketches and magnificent paintings by Jackie. A must for birdwatchers, art lovers and romantics alike.
'Queen of the Sky is a love letter to all things wild, but also to friendship and to the courage that admits that to attempt to own the wild is to destroy it. Yet wildness is captured and held for the reader to possess in Jackie Morris’ photographs and paintings.' Robin Hobb
