"Eagle huntress Aisholpan Nurgaiv shares her story"-- Provided by publisher.
"The subject of the award-winning documentary The Eagle Huntress tells the true story of how she became the first girl to compete in -- and win -- one of Mongolia's most prestigious competitions. With the support of her father, she captured and trained her own golden eagle and won the Ölgii eagle festival. She was the only girl to compete in the festival. The Eagle Huntress is a striking tale of determination -- of a girl who defied expectations and achieved what others declared impossible." -- Adapted from
