In this endearing children's tale, a grandfather teaches his grandson the way of Condor, North America's largest flying bird and a rare resident of the American Southwest. While setting traps at the bottom of the canyon, Little Feather sees Condor flying overhead and runs to his grandfather to ask what he has seen. His grandfather looks into the fire, smiles, and says, "Condor, you saw Condor."
The boy soon embarks on a magical adventure filled with dreams of one day flying with Condor. Along the way, he learns much about Condor, the natural world, and himself.
