An excellent tale about treating our animal friends with kindness and respect, while everyone was shooing and complaining about the eagles 'stealing' fish, one kind soul was sharing his food with eagles instead of despising them. Reciprocity was his reward in his time of need.

The phrase 'how we do one thing is who we do everything' comes to mind with this story since the same folks that did not want to share with the eagles didn't think twice about leaving the kind boy behind one their search for more food. "Let the eagles feed you" they mocked.

They soon discovered how wrong they were to leave him behind. They also discovered that he had created harmony and was taken care of. After working through his emotions of being left, with the help of a fiercely just eagle, the boy was able to forgive his tribe and have them back with much food for everyone.

Beautiful imagery and meaning. A book we could all reflect and grow from.
