Falconry, the ‘sport of kings’, is today more popular than ever before, with some 100,000 falconers active in over 60 countries. This beautiful book traces its history through the ages and across continents, separating myth from reality and exploring its traditions, techniques and lore. Lavishly illustrated throughout, it offers the best introduction and testament yet to this ancient exhilarating sport.
‘...stunningly illustrated...a fascinating exploration of the ancient mystique of these noble birds.’ – The Scotsman
