This is an interesting tale of a camel that is friends with two kestrels. They give her the chicks to carry on her head and keep them safe.
Antheneum and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published September 7th.
The camels are taught to race and do quite well at it. The royal Pasha of Smyrna, makes them a gift and soon they are taken to Texas. That's where she meets the kestrels. And it's also where a bad sand storm separates everyone.
The mom and pop kestrels get separated. The camel and the two baby birds head for shelter. They even get to meet the mountain lion who lives there.
Will they be able to find their mom and dad? What will happen to the camel?
