    "In October 1918, during World War I, nearly seven hundred American soldiers were trapped behind enemy lines with no prospect of rescue. Allied troops did not have access to their location, and every attempt at communication provoked more casualties. Their only hope -- to dispatch a trained messenger pigeon to reach help miles away. This unforgettable story celebrates courage and determination in its most vulnerable form. Cher Ami's fearless flight was a remarkable moment in history."--
