If you played the Freaky Friday game in my last post, you'll have the mystery book on your Kindle device now, or decided that I really should pay you for taking it. Nevertheless, the book of the day was Eagle Quest, and has returned to his hideously expensive regular price of $1.99 (or the equivalent in foreign currency for which I've already paid the VAT for your country).
A Vision Quest turns deadly when four friends confront eagle poachers in a wildlife refuge.
Fiona, Hap, Billy, and Mitch make an odd set of friends, as different from the usual junior high school crowd as they are from each other.
Mitch, the oldest of the four, is a half-breed Native American, adopted by white parents. Troubled that he doesn't know his tribe, he avidly studies Native American history and lore. Learning the nearby Bear Valley Wildlife Refuge is a bald eagle nesting site, he wants to add an eagle feather to his medicine bag and explore the refuge as a site for his Vision Quest, a Native American rite of passage. He and his three friends get far more than an overnight camp out as they encounter a black bear, a retired forest ranger living in the refuge, and a pair of eagle poachers. Bringing the poachers to justice, they test their courage and gain confidence in themselves and each other.
