As the iron bars close round Creggan, the captured eagle, his heart begins to die.
But inside the cages is Minch, a female eagle, who is determined to teach Creggan not to forget about freedom. And outside is Mr Volski, the zoo's sweeper, a man haunted by the horror of captivity – his own and the birds.
When the time comes Creggan and Mr Volski are ready for the final struggle towards Callanish.
Brilliantly imagined, spare and tensely plotted, Callanish is dedicated to Goldie, the eagle who escaped briefly from a London Zoo in 1965.
"A fascinating book of rare insight and understanding." – Virginia McKenna
