Back cover copy

From the moment Jeff Guidry saw the baby eagle with broken wings, his life was changed. For weeks he and the staff at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center tended to the grievously injured bird. Miraculously, she recovered. And after Jeff was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2000, Freedom returned his gift. While undergoing chemotherapy, the time Jeff spent with Freedom soothed his spirit and gave him the strength to fight. When he learned he was cancer free, he shared his news on a walk with Freedom. Somehow this special bird seemed to understand the significance of the day; for the first time, she wrapped both her wings around Jeff in an avian hug.

In March 2008, Jeff shared his extraordinary experience in an email to a friend that would unexpectedly circle the globe and inspire countless fans. In An Eagle Named Freedom, Jeff tells the full story of his bond with Freedom and introduces the other wildlife and volunteers who have been saved by Sarvey. A tender tale of hope, love, trust, and life, this true story is an affirmation of the spiritual connection that humans and animals share.
