A very well researched and informative book aimed at the beginner. Explained logically step by step with plentiful clear pictures, this book, by, in my opinion,one of the best display falconers in Scotland, is a very very worthwhile buy.

This book is well presented and a must for any new falconer that is interested in harris hawks in particular.
It clearly cover all the topics you need and more!!
This is not a book that will be of no use when your bird is trained as it has lots of tecniques and hints that will insure this book is by no means restricted to the begginer.
the subjects on manning and equiping are excellent as it encourages the begginer to look at every problem from the birds point of view.
this is a must if you are considering taking up falconry as the importance of representing the sport to a high standard are stressed. This book is (rightly so) based on the Harris hawk or redtail. as these are more sutible birds for begginers.
so if you are considering the redtail or harris hawk buy this book and you will not be dissapointed!!

this book works for novice and experienced alike, found lots of little tips and tricks through out its pages to elevate my own game, and have passed it on numerous times to others who were looking to learn more about working with birds of prey and focusing on harris hawks.

Well presented and highly detailed from making equipment to training and management, the steps are easy to follow and laid out in full color detail.

This book is perfect for someone who has tried falonry/hawking and wants to know more. It goes through the whole process of training a bird, with many useful tips and anecdotes along the way. If you are serious about the sport and want to practice it to the highest possible standard (as you should), then this is a great place to start.

Informative and authoritative read if your serious about taking up the sport of hawking and falconry. Great advice on learning the basics through to advance techniques. My recommendation is to disregard going for day courses at the various centres that will set you back £500 to £1,000. Best to align yourself with a local mentor and train on one of their birds before you decide the commitment of owning a bird of your own. Use this well written book in conjunction with your mentor and you are unlikely to go wrong. Happy hawking.
