Alan Tennant writes and narrates his experience of following a migrating peregrine falcon in an old Cessna piloted by a buddy. The two men follow the falcon, on which a transmitter is attached, from their home in Texas to the Arctic, and then south through Mexico, Belize, and into the Caribbean. The abridgment is somewhat difficult to follow, and Tennant is an uninspired reader; the combination makes the audio production somewhat a bore. Tennant's voice is gravelly and indistinct and doesn't express emotion. Even when he loses his girlfriend, he can't make the listener care. Tennant's unique story is interesting and would have benefited from a better reader. A.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
