During WWII, Jed's English father serves as a fighter pilot overseas, while Jed and his mother move back to her Tsimshian community on Canada's west coast. When the military sets up a naval base in town, Jed is hired to help out, honored it seems, for both his father's bravery and his own native skills as a hunter. Presented with a military jacket, Jed finds an allegiance to his country and a pride in his mixed heritage that he's never felt before.
But one day Jed's world is shattered. His best friend Tadashi, along with the other members of the nearby Japanese village, are declared enemy aliens and told to prepare to leave their homes. Now Jed must ask himself where his allegiance really belongs.to his country's rigid code, or to the truth that is buried in his Tsimshian soul.
War of the Eagles is the first of two books in a series.
Book two is Caged Eagles.
From the Jacket
Jed knows what it will take to free the eagle he has nursed back to health. One carefully aimed shot from his rifle, and the reluctant bird will be startled into flight.
But for Jed, the challenge to find and free himself is much more difficult. Can he learn to understand and take pride in his Native heritage? And, more important, will Jed accept his country's betrayal of his best friend?

From Our Editors
Jed has nursed an injured eagle back to health, but the eagle is still reluctant to fly. Jed knows what it will take to make it fly again - a single shot from his gun will startle the eagle into flight. More difficult to solve is the problem of his own freedom. Jed must learn to understand and take pride in his Native Indian heritage before he can grow into his destiny in Eric Walters' War of the Eagles.
