Grayson Lone Feather loves to wander the woods behind his stepdad's property. He finds all kinds of things out there, chief among them typically being peace of mind. But when Gray comes upon a barrel-sized egg exposed by the collapse of a short limestone bluff, and what's inside it turns out to be alive and more than kicking, he finds himself at the center of action far beyond his wildest imaginings. Soon a gigantic "something" is roaming the Illinois skies, and Gray and his friend Jaleen are off to find it. But so is the military, because the beast is terrorizing the skies, dogging aircraft and even engaging with attack choppers...as it grows ever larger and stronger.
A throwback "giant monster" tale from '50s cinema in one way, a thoughtful journey into personal responsibility and kinship with all of nature in another, My Thunderbird is a potent tale of love, death and resurrection.
