Author feeding a rabbit to a Golden Eagle he named "Lucy".

Flying Free is the story of a female Golden Eagle I raised from an orphaned egg. The eaglet was brought into the world through the combined efforts of a banty hen, a shoe box, and a 60 watt bulb. I helped Lucy learn to fly in a chicken lot on the 16,000 acre canyon ranch where I lived, near Amarillo, Texas. After I released the eagle into the wild, she chose to live in the canyon, within sight of the place of her birth. Eagle Lucy and I shared in a "relationship" across her 24 year life. Dodd-Mead published the hardback edition of the heartwarming story of Lucy's life.
Dan: "Your book is the best book I have ever read. " Norm Zollinger, owner of Little Professor Book Store, (retired) Albuquerque, NM.
Reader's Digest featured Flying Free in their condensed books, and it holds the magazine's all time record for number of foreign translations.
I have received hundreds of glowing reader comments.
