Critically acclaimed novelist Louise Erdrich weaves a tale about a quirky grandmother who unexpectedly sails away from her family, leaving behind warm memories and her room's few belongings--including her collection of birds' nests. One year after Grandmother's departure, three eggs in one of the nests miraculously begin to hatch and out pops a breed of passenger pigeon long thought to be extinct. When too many visiting scientists threaten the three hatchlings' freedom, Grandmother's family take matters into their own hands. "Smithsonian" Notable Book for Children.
