A reference work,
This review is from: Falconry and Hawking (Hardcover)
Phillip Glasier's Falconry and Hawking is by far the best book on this little known art. His style of writing is as close to being mentored by the well versed hunter as you'll probably ever get! It really does read as though you are being taught, but never patronises the reader, it's a real pleasure to pick-up, and a problem to put down.
The book (now the 3rd Edition) is quite weighty, and contains just about everything to get you started and more. One peice of advice given by him is to get one book, and read that one only, and having ignored that (!) I have bought a few, but this is the one that knocks the rest into touch. It was recommended to me by my mentor with twenty years experience, and she was not wrong.
