The true story in words and photographs of Amica, a large, flightless bird called a rhea, who was rescued and raised by a family in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. Amica is a remarkably intelligent bird with a range of humanlike emotion including humour, curiosity and attachment. Mother and son Meadow and Washo Shadowhawk explore the story of rheas, which are primarily raised as livestock, as well as their family's experience raising one. They call on us to treat all animals humanely and to question the way we live, eat and see the world around us.
