The inspiring story of the bald eagle’s resurgence is the good news in this follow-up to WHERE THE BALD EAGLES GATHER, published by Clarion in 1984.

Young naturalists are sure to be encouraged by this account of a remarkably successful conservation effort, expertly documented by the same team that first helped to introduce young readers to the eagle’s plight.
