A lyrical storybook, with understated line drawings and an equally reticent text, reveals how the boy Rudy Soto in the land of the desert and the Santos Mountain dreams of flying: “He doesn’t see himself/some little/light-winged bird/that flaps/and flutters/when it flies./No cactus wren./No sparrow./He’d be/more like/a Hawk/gliding/smoother/than anything else/in the world.” Rudy steals a baby redtall hawk from its mountainside aerie, caging it and stringing it to his wrist. Even to the end of summer the bird tugs to be free, and Rudy knows he must return it to the high red rocks where the wind will help it fly. “Brother to Brother” they call to each other while the bird flies as Rudy had always dreamed he would fly. The clean ink drawings ably convey the sense of wide spaces, the power of the bird, and the yearning attitude of the boy.
