The hawk was created in the image of a hawk. That means he must use violence every day of his life if he wants to eat and live another day. He can never wake up one morning and say to himself, I no longer wish to eat mice and snakes; I want to eat seeds and nuts like the cardinal. No, he cannot do this, and why? Because he was created in the image of a hawk. I don't see, I don't understand.

Joseph R Durika once again compliments the storyline with his brilliant narration.

I am so pleasantly surprised by the latest installment of the Sam and Laura saga. It is now my favorite! Kwen Griffeth is a master story teller and Joseph Durika has come into his own through the telling of this fine tale.
