The Eagle Huntress
The True Story of the Girl Who Soared Beyond Expectations
Narrated by Alexa Khan / 3 hours 28 minutes
“The Eagle Huntress is a fascinating story of eagle hunting, the Kazakh people and their nomadic culture, and Aisholpan Nurgaiv's personal story. This short memoir provides insight into a girls' determination to succeed at something she loves, which will inspire anyone in the pursuit of their dreams.”Tina, Leaves Book and Tea Shop
The subject of the award-winning documentary The Eagle Huntress tells the true story of how she became the first girl to compete in -- and win -- one of Mongolia's most prestigious competitions.
In this compelling memoir, teenaged eagle hunter Aisholpan Nurgaiv tells her own story for the first time, speaking directly with award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Liz Welch (I Will Always Write Back), who traveled to Mongolia for this book. Nurgaiv's story and fresh, sincere voice are not only inspiring but truly magnificent: with the support of her father, she captured and trained her own golden eagle and won the Ölgii eagle festival. She was the only girl to compete in the festival.
The Eagle Huntress is a striking tale of determination -- of a girl who defied expectations and achieved what others declared impossible. Aisholpan Nurgaiv's story is both unique and universally relatable: a memoir of survival, empowerment, and the positive impact of one person's triumph.
