The book ends with a Lakota prayer that means "I will live with all my relations" including the ones that fly, the creepy crawlies, our 2 and 4 legged friends, the ones that swim, the earth that we live on. This sums up the theme of "An Eagle named Freedom" well. This book will appeal to anyone who loves human/animal stories, such as "Wesley the Owl", "The Good Good Pig", "Homer's Odyssey", etc.
The book was very heartwarming, enjoyable, an easy read and I'm glad I read it. But it was a little light so not top on my list of books in this genre. I would've preferred better writing, more animal fact & lore and more of the animal/animal/human relationship. It seemed to gloss over all.
But I do want to research volunteering at a Wildlife Sanctuary in my area (if there is one) and for that reason I think the author would say the book is a huge success.
