This is a story about a pigeon named Walter living with his family and friends under a railroad bridge. Walter and his sidekick, Eddie, are two adventurous birds that discover a homing pigeon coup and join to capture the greatness of the pigeon past when they were important messenger birds. The USA comes under attack from the south after an EMP bomb (electromagnetic pulse bomb) was detonated over the USA, rendering all electricity voids, throwing the country back to the nineteenth-century horse-and-buggy days. Walter and friends are drafted into the army and become vital messenger birds that go thru dangerous times, flying thru a hail of bullets from one front to another. Walter distinguishes himself, finds love and a strange group of animal friends that help him to ultimate victory, amidst espionage, intrigue, and death of war. You will laugh, love, and bite your nails in excitement while reading this gem of a story, sad that it has to end.
