Our connection to the natural world is celebrated in this story of thirteen-year-old Charlie and his raven, Blue Sky. Charlie’s grandfather is ill and Charlie wants to help him through some of the old Indian ways. He raises a raven, Blue Sky, and as time passes, becomes vividly aware of the intelligence and spirt of the bird. What real powers does Blue Sky possess? Can he heal grandfather? The spirit connection that we feel between humans and nature vibrates throughout the story.
