Calling Crow travels down the Southeast coast in search of his wife, Juana, taken by the Spanish. He is captured and badly wounded by the Coosa people. Unable to care for himself, he is saved from a slow, painful death and nursed back to health by Green Bird Woman, who he grows to love. Adopted by the Coosa, Calling Crow becomes their chief.
One day word arrives that French Protestant colonists have settled to the north. Then, Spanish Catholic colonists settle near Calling Crow's village and he discovers that Juana is among them. The two European groups learn of each other's presence and make war plans. Now Calling Crow must prevent the coming battle from destroying his adopted people, and the two women he loves, one of which he must choose.

It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
FLIGHT of the CROW was such a great follow up to the first book CALLING CROW. It starts off strong and just gets better from there. Calling Crow is put in the middle of the Spanish and the French and I don't think he knew who to trust. He did however finally put his trust into the white man's God. I love his character. There's really good character buildup in this story including a few baddies such as Black Snake who wants to kill him. He loves Green Bird woman and feels loyal to Juana and tries to protect her. This was an action-packed listen and flowed very well. It was hard to stop listening. I love that Calling Crow now has a legacy and I look forward to seeing where the next part of his journey picks up. Great story by Paul Clayton.
Kevin Arthur Harper's performance was outstanding. He WAS Calling Crow. I liked the way he moved the story forward in a progressive way. He also did an impressive job with the dialect. He was flawless. This was an overall great listen and recommended.

Flight of the Crow is the second book in a series of 3. I loved the first book, Calling Crow, and was thrilled to find the second one was just as captivating as the first. Although historical fiction has never been a genre that I have explored, this book blew me away. The narrator made it come alive as if I was watching it on the big screen.....The story line is very well written and I found myself hanging on the edge, anticipating what would happen next! I highly recommend this book to anyone. I'm so looking forward to seeing how the story continues in the 3rd book.
No, others may not like it as I did. It is a good book about when there have been changes in the country and the way people must change with it
The author tells of the changing times and how we must look at others and see that they are just like we are. People. We are all the same and that we have different cultures and must learn to respect them as well as their people.
My favorite scene is when Falling Crow must explain the big dog to the people.
I chuckled and I cried. In one scene I cried when Juana, the priest and Calling Crow were in the dream place.
