Oksi - the daughter of the legendary falcon, Frightful - does things her own way. And when a poacher climbs the steel girders of a bridge to Frightful's nest, Oksi's refusal to act like her brothers keeps her from being captured. Unfortunately Frightful (who can't count) thinks the man has stolen all of her babies, and she abandons the nest. Luckily Frightful's friend, Sam Gribley, comes to Oksi's aid.
This delightful continuation of the story from Frightful's Mountain serves as a great introduction for young listeners to the lessons of forest life.
