In this endearing children's tale, a grandfather teaches his grandson the way of Condor, North America's largest flying bird and a rare resident of the American Southwest. While setting traps at the bottom of the canyon, Little Feather sees Condor flying overhead and runs to his grandfather to ask what he has seen. His grandfather looks into the fire, smiles, and says, "Condor, you saw Condor." The boy soon embarks on a magical adventure filled with dreams of one day flying with Condor. Along the way, he learns much about Condor, the natural world, and himself.
Robert Mesta is an ornithologist and a member of the Yaqui Tribe of southern Arizona. Mesta has spent his entire professional career working to protect, conserve, and recover threatened and endangered North American bird populations. Mesta lives in Tucson. Condor: Spirit of the Canyon is his first book. Lawrence Ormsby has spent his life exploring Arizona's natural wonders. From an early age, drawing was important to him, and he later chose to make his career in art and design. Ormsby's studio is located in Ironwood Forest National Monument, northwest of Tucson, where he and his partner Carole Thickstun create award-winning books and educational projects about numerous national parks and forests.
