Overview

Falconry refers to the hunting of wild animals in their natural habitats through the use of trained birds of prey. Since the terms 'hawking' and 'hawker' have become synonymous with the endeavors of traveling traders, the terms 'falconer' and 'falconry' have become the typical nomenclature for the use of birds of prey in catching game. This fascinating text comprises a comprehensive treatise on hawking and the the proper care and management of Falcons. The perfect handbook for both prospective and existing falconers alike, this text constitutes a worthy addition to collections of avicultural literature and will prove invaluable to those with a keen interest in the subject. We are proud to republish this fascinating and education text complete with a new introduction on the topic.
