Amica's World: How A Giant Bird Came Into Our Heart and Home
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
The true story in words and photographs of Amica, a large, flightless bird called a rhea, who is rescued and raised by a family in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. Mother and son Meadow and Washo Shadowhawk use words and photos to explore the history of rheas, which are primarily seen as livestock, as well as their family's experience raising one. They call on us to question the way we raise livestock, and call on us to treat all animals as humanely as possible. Featuring an introduction by acclaimed primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall.
