This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to the art of hawking, with information on training, game-hawking, equipment, care and management, nutrition, handling, history, and much more. Based on the author's thirty years hawking experience, this timeless manual contains everything a beginner might need to know on the subject, and will also include information of value to those with more experience. Contents include: "History and Literature", "The Birds Used in Hawking", "Furniture and Fittings", "Eyesses and Hack Hawks", "Passage Hawks", "Training and Entering", "Rook-Hawking", "Game-Hawking", "Lark-Hawking", "Gulls, Heron, Kite, Duck", "The Goshawk", et cetera. Many vintage texts such as this, especially those dating back to the 1900s and before, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on falconry.
