The Wounded Hawk by Bud Wainscott

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Elisha was faced with making a very big and dangerous decision. His father’s steel traps were used in the forest for trapping large animals. Animals that were trapped by mistake should be freed as quickly as possible. Elisha discovered a beautiful hawk caught in one of the traps. He heard the screams before he went into the forest. In fact, he knew he was not to enter the forest without his father or another adult. Should he try to free the hawk whose leg was almost severed by the steel trap or wait for his father to return home? Elisha made the right decision because the hawk would later repay the deed by saving Elisha’s life from a very large and mean black bull. So often good deeds we do for others have a way on returning to us. It certainly was a learned lesson for Elisha and his family.
