Hamburger and French Flies: A Barn Swallow's Story is the incredible true story of a barn swallow who survived against harrowing odds. Knocked from its nest when only days old, Raven was taken in by a student named Carol, who was spending her summer banding sandpipers in Dorchester Cape, New Brunswick with the Canadian Wildlife Service. Too small to be separated from his parents and with barely any feathers yet to keep him warm, Carol and her mother nursed Raven to full and exceptional health.
With Raven's best interest at heart, unbeknownst to the little swallow, Carol imparted him with survival habits. She encouraged him to fly and taught him where to uncover bugs when food was sparse. And when the time came, while it broke her heart to do so, Carol sent Raven to be with his own kind. Confused but with a new feeling stirring inside him, Raven obeyed and travelled south to survive the harsh Canadian winter.
Follow Raven's journey in Hamburger and French Flies: A Barn Swallow's Story to learn the remarkable tale of familial bonds and natural instinct-how there is reunion and forgiveness even in distance and time apart. And how most of all, there is new life on the other side.
