Two gonzo grad students and a fearless Native American woman clash with the FBI as they search for an endangered, sacred bird on her tribal homeland that could save the area from loggers.
She leads them into the back country, and while Jake and Duncan are searching for their prized bird, she blows up a bridge and sets fire to the logging camp. The FBI shows up to hunt down the perpetrators.
Shawnee Ray, Jake, and Duncan are on the run. If they’re caught, they’ll spend twenty years in prison. But if they can find the Squawker, they’ll save this magnificent bird from extinction and keep Shawnee Ray’s tribe from vanishing from the face of the earth.
As the authorities close in, they take to the sky in a hot air balloon — ready to risk it all.
