5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable printed asset. 31 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
The book defines within the first couple of pages if you are the right person to take up the art of falconry, if you do continue to read, the dedication and devotion to the birds from Mrs Parry-Jones is conveyed across as not a passion but a law if you decide to take up the sport. A detailed account of every step to sucessfull falconry through the eyes of a master.

Anyone who keeps raptors and owls will know of Jemima Parry-Jones MBE. Mrs Parry Jones has assisted organisations worldwide to re-introduce birds of prey back to their natural habitat. The National Bird of Prey Centre in Newent, England, run by Mrs Parry-Jones is a really top-notch establishment demonstrating just how raptors should be kept and trained. There it begins, a book written by someone so knowledgeable who knows how raptors should be kept and trained. This is a great book for the beginner in the sport of Falconry and at a very reasonable price. For your hawk/owl's sake buy it in preference to the Lee William-Harris book, please!
