The Seventh Crane is a beautiful fable about the relationships between humans and nature and growing up into your true self.
An unnamed young girl encounters a whooping crane on a beach on a family holiday. She never forgets the experience and she meets more cranes on the same beach as she grows up through her teenage days of writing her journal on the beach to her adulthood as a wildlife photographer. The story is told largely from the points of view of the cranes, and includes insights into their lives, nest making and courtship and family relationships.
It's a beautiful, touching story of how we can create close relationships with birds and how we can learn to use our wings and become the person we really are.
