The Eagle Huntress: The True Story of the Girl Who Soared Beyond Expectations
Written by Aisholpan Nurgaiv with Liz Welch
Aisholpan Nurgaiv, the subject of the award-winning documentary, The Eagle Huntress, tells her own story for the first time, speaking directly with writer Liz Welch, who traveled to Mongolia for this book. Her story and fresh, sincere voice are not only inspiring but truly magnificent: with the support of her father, she captured and trained her own golden eagle and won the lgii eagle festival. She was the only girl to compete in the festival.
Her triumphant story hits on multiple key nonfiction points of appeal: stories of survival, of unique animal-human bonds, and of girls accomplishing amazing things.
