Birds carry a message for Claire that she doesn’t understand. Eleven-year-old Claire doesn’t tell anyone of her uncanny power to attract birds. She is a devoted birder, home schooled in the woods of central Pennsylvania, who discovers she’s part of a local legend, one involving a Red-tailed Hawk. The hawk saved her as a toddler; now it’s her turn to save the hawk. Claire and her mother Louise live in a densely forested region of North Central Pennsylvania where her mother is about to open a small rural grocery store. While drifting through the woodland with her sheepdog, Claire encounters a local Red-tailed Hawk known as Big Red and a crusty old man (with a pet chicken), who tells her amazing stories about the female hawk. Like herself, Jerry is an oddball with an affinity for birds. But as Claire develops a cautious friendship with this mysterious and erratic elder, her new friendship with Victor falters. He is best friends with her foe, Billy, a bully in the seventh grade. And Billy’s father is a drunkard obsessed with killing Big Red. Claire works to defend the raptor, whose life increasingly entwines with her own, while dodging Billy’s mean-spirited plots against her. Finally, Victor comes to Claire’s aid. And together they work to solve the strange mystery of her ability to attract birds, a mystery including the wizardly old man and a mystical hawk to whom they give the name Ku-Khain.

Influencers… social media gurus… They come and go. Plato has been trending for the last 2,000 years. Why? The last 170 years have seen a rapid expansion in human thought and technology. It’s strange to think there was a time when you couldn’t instantly communicate with anyone. Man is no longer defeated by distance. Anywhere you think of going, there’s a form of transport to get you there. People enjoy greater access to prosperity, equal opportunity, and life-saving medical care. The answer to any question is just a click away. Yet, we seem more lost than ever. The interconnectivity of modern life has left many people feeling overwhelmed. Today, we wrestle with the consequences of information saturation. In fact, in the 2019 study “Accelerating Dynamics of Collective Attention,” scientists presented empirical evidence showcasing the escalating trend of our collective attention span’s narrowing and fragmentation. Published in Nature Communications, the study provides supporting data on how today’s modern world hurts the quality of information we consume. But beyond that, it can also lead to insights on modernity’s negative effects on our critical thinking, decision-making, and even empathy.
