Ish is chasing the rarest bird in the world, and so is a ruthless band of hunters. The air is contaminated. A monster with countless heads lurks underground, resurfacing often to wreak its havoc. Ish is unarmed. Carrying only a net and logbook, he rides alone through the wilds where mischievous little gray creatures called isps frolic. When the hunters unleash upon him a series of atrocities to dissuade him from competing with them, his obsession for the chase is mingled with overpowering, vehement revenge. He grapples with morality, guilt, and a sickness that threatens his life. He does not know if the Golden Falcon will be his cure, but he suspects there could be more to this mystical creature than meets the eye. An allegory for the human condition, Ish and the Golden Falcon takes readers on a vivid, tragic, comic, and moving journey into friendship and hope. Gideon Easton imagines a place that is fantastic enough to captivate-from the steaming rocks of its shores to the ruins of its battlefields-but in which very real questions and answers as to why we persevere are left to flicker in auroras and rainstorms.
