This magical fable begins with the story of the Goshawk, an aristocratic bird of prey who was raised in the Royal Court of St. Petersburg in old Russia. Cast aside after her owners emigrated to New York, the aging huntress soon finds herself in the wilds of Northern Ontario, where she meets up with Wittgenstein, the budgerigar. Patrick Watson's brilliant imagination and vivid storytelling bring us a cast of animal and human characters who make us laugh out loud, while at the same time wrestling with some of life's most challenging issues and values: loyalty, integrity, craft and self-knowledge.
