Eagle hunters date back thousands of years. The majority are men, taught by their fathers, who were taught by their fathers. But Aisholpan grew up around eagles, so when she asked her father to train her and he said yes, she unknowingly joined an ancient tradition of women warriors. With the support of her family, she worked with her own golden eagle and became the youngest-and first female-eagle hunter to take part in the highly competitive Golden Eagle Festival in lgii, Mongolia. Then she won. In this inspiring memoir, Aisholpan shares details of her family's nomadic life in Mongolia and how tourists, a photographer, a filmmaker, an eagle, and her own determination changed her life, helped her community, and connected her with a cultural past rich in tradition. Book jacket.
