Summary
"The story of a young boy's maturing, from the age of dreams of great and daring deeds to a growing awareness of his age-mates, and especially of one young girl in his class at school. After an especially severe storm one night the boy discovers a gyrfalcon with a broken wing. The wild creature seems to sense the boy's friendliness and allows him to take it home and care for it. During the next months it becomes the symbol of his dreams, and even when it creates problems by attacking the neighbors' dogs and tame pigeons, he cannot bear to think of losing it. Then comes a day when the boy forgets the falcon in his excitement over being invited to a girl's birthday party, and when he reaches home the falcon is gone. Even his grief is tinged with an awareness that he has outgrown a period in his life and is about to enter into new experiences. The theme is not a new one, but is presented in a style that will have appeal for the more mature and perceptive reader." -- Bulletin of the Children's Book Center, vol.IX, no.9., May 1956
