“[E]xtraordinary . . .” —Delia Ephron

In 1955, Ed Durden brought a baby golden eagle home to his ranch in California, where she would stay for the next sixteen years. As her bond with Ed and the Durden family grew, the eagle, named Lady, displayed a fierce intelligence and strong personality. She learned quickly, had a strong mothering instinct (even for other species), and never stopped surprising those who cared for her. A New York Times bestseller for eight weeks upon its publication, Gifts of an Eagle is a heartwarming story about a breathtaking eagle and the people whose lives she changed forever.

Lady -- a golden eagle raised and trained by Durden's father, Ed -- receives an affectionate, unsentimental tribute, certainly a generous gesture since the eagle hated the sight of the author, shrieking with rage when he approached.
