Description

Nine year old Matica lives in a remote village on a dry plateau in the Andes of Peru with her Australian missionary and schoolteacher parents. Matica has a growth handicap and is trapped in the body of a two year old, causing her to be rejected by the local people, who do not allow her to play with their children. With patience and a sense of adventure, Matica befriends a pair of condors. A strong bond and love develops between them. She rescues the egg the condors, Tamo and Tima, are trying to protect from poachers and nurtures it to hatching. The egg hatches on her 10th birthday. She names the new fledging Talon. This is the beginning of many incredible adventures with Talon and Matica. It is a story of hope, determination and love.

Our customer reviews

This book is definitely worth reading not only by young adults, but all people who want to achieve their life goals and lead a meaningful existence. I am not quite sure this story was based on a real-life case or not, but it definitely has a moral, presented in an amazing natural form. The adventures of the 'little' girl, that is, the protagonist, could surely convey some deep concerns about our human side, reason, open-mindedness and overall conscientious development. The story is both adventurous and profound, specific and universal. Either way, it is enjoyable and unforgettable. The latter you may experience yourself.
