The nomadic Kazakhs in Mongolia are guided by the rhythms of the seasons, but their love of family and animals defines their way of life. Aisholpan Nurgaiv was born into such a family. Even as a toddler, her love and respect for her father's hunting eagle was apparent. At 13, she entered and won the Golden Eagle Festival competition with her father's eagle, becoming the first female huntress in seven generations of her family. With the help of Welch, Nurgaiv describes her family and their devotion to the eagles they train and use in their hunts. Her story will effortlessly bring children into her world and introduce them to her treasured traditions. Though her culture and upbringing will be very different from that of the average reader, they will connect with Nurgaiv's young age and pursuit of her passion. Further reading suggestions and a Kazakh glossary offer additional insight into Kazakh culture. A great stand-alone or companion to the documentary film The Eagle Huntress. Grades 4-8.
