Book Description

23 Oct 2006
Aimed at both those who are on the point of taking up falconry as well as those who already have hawks, "Falconry - The Essential Guide" examines all aspects of the sport and is packed with practical advice and information. The author's enthusiasm for his subject is infectious and the text is written in a clear, accessible style. His realistic approach to falconry is demonstrated by his assertion that we should "not let people over-complicate the theory" and that we should "stick to common sense and consistency".

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 16 Feb 2007
By Lannier
Of the 5 books on falconry I've bought so far this is the best one. In less than 150 pages you will known what is really falconry, what you can expect from a bird of prey (Bop) but also what you will never get. You will know as well whether it is sensible for you to start practising falconry or not. Of course, as this book is relatively short in pages you are bound to be eager to buy other books but you'll find out that few will content information not already present in this excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely delightful guide to a magnificent sport. 28 Oct 2010
By N Ruffan - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a fantastic introduction to the sport of Falconry. While it is by no means an exhaustive guidebook, it presents a clear path for those that wish to learn more about the sport. It emphasizes more than once, that falconry is not a sport that you can just pick up and put down, it is for serious hunters and bird lovers only.

Beautiful photography and colorful writing bring this short but fun book to life. I had a great time reading it and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn more about Falconry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction 31 Oct 2011
By Passenger - Published on
What sets this book apart is the professional and memorable style of the writing. The author has very deep knowledge and experience - and just as importantly he is able to communicate it in a very human, effective way. An excellent way to learn the basics of falconry, and highly recommended.
