Jackie Morris tells the story of how Ffion Rees rescued a peregrine falcon and nursed her back to health. This beautifully illustrated book gives more than just an account of events, it tells the story of the bond which grew between a wild creature and its would be saviour.
“Queen of the Sky is a truly unusual and beautiful book – a unique blend of stunning art, accomplished photography and fascinating narrative. The overall effect is actually very moving – a wonderful celebration of the precious bond between human kind and the natural world.” Bel Mooney
“One of the most beautiful books I have ever held.” John Lewis-Stempel
“Queen of the Sky is a wonderful book (I confess it made me cry), weaving text, paintings, and photographs with wind and waves, feather and fur. It’s a story about friendship — between women, between species; and a story about the land, and love, and loss.” Terri Windling
“Queen of the Sky is a book by Jackie Morris that confounds all rules, and satisfies all senses, drawing us into a personal and intimate story of love and freedom… and a bird. I hardly knew where to begin… the words? the photos? the illustrations?” James Mayhew
