Best to describe by a reviewer: Talon Come Fly with me, the first book of a series, with 5 books now, (more to come) is an inspirational, engaging and thoughtful story. It follows the story of a little nine year old girl whose parents are missionaries in the small village of Pucara, Peru. Matica finds making friends with the local kids to be difficult. Matica has a condition that has hindered her growth, so she is extremely small like that of a two year old. The local Indians and villagers, don't understand her and are leery and mistrustful of her.

The condor's egg is stolen by poachers and Matica and her father set out to rescue it, and they are successful. With the condor's approval, Matica takes care of the precious egg.
