In the pristine desert of southern Colorado, a wildlife biologist spends a gruelling summer atop Chimney Rock observing a pair of nesting peregrine falcons, a species perilously close to extinction. She hopes her research will shed light on how to help the species 'recover'. The real-life drama that unfolds is rife with conflict, sadness, humour, and profound humility. Wings for My Flight tells the coming of age story of one biologist who, through the help of another species, comes to a greater understanding of her own.
