Andy is fascinated by wedgetail eagles. He lies on the shed roofs of his family's farm and watches them cruising about on their huge wings, high above him in the sunlit air. They are like skaters skimming on ice, gliding in vast arcs and circles. One day a ranger brings him an orphaned eaglet so tiny that it seems unlikely to survive. WEDGETAIL is the story of Andy's struggle to save it, to nurse it and feed it - and to protect it from danger, human and otherwise.
