After unsucessfully trying to return him to the nest, she took him into her Texas home and raised him as carefully as she had raised her own child, teaching him to perch, to fly, even to talk. Arnie resisted all attempts to restore him to the wild, preferring steak and canned corn to worms, which frightened him, and even developing a taste for wine.Most astonishing of all, he learned to talk and sing, and he had a remarkable influence on a number of lives.

Lenny, the young drug addict, paused on the road to self-destruction, so enthralled by Arnie that he carried a dog-eared picture of him in his wallet. Suzanne, the Vietnamese refugee, learned from Arnie that wrong home can be a prison and fled to Colorado to start a new life. Margaretes grandson, Travis, who called Arnie Superbird, gained a new respect for wild creatures, and even her three cats came to love Arnie as one of their own.Arnie is full of life, laughter, and love. It is a completely irresistable book.
