|“He was gallant, he was regal,|
Did you see that eagle,
Eyes, canary diamonds in the sun?”
The book is based on a patriotic song
written by Betty Paraskevas.
An excerpt from Publisher’s Weekly:
“On the Fourth of July, as stately tall ships journey up
the Hudson River past modern Manhattan, a lone eagle
joins their procession, a symbol come to life.”
