Under the Bright Wings
Under the Bright Wings tells the story of Peter and Miranda Harris and how they founded A Rocha in the Algarve, Portugal, in 1983.

This book describes their experiences, the challenges that were overcome, and the people involved in making it happen. It also provides an exploration of the Christian commitment to conservation as an act of worship and of mission.
