9781447464488: The Art and Practice of Hawking

Hawking dates back to antiquity and has been practiced in one form or another in every civilization. Here is a guide for anybody wishing to train a hawk for hunting or for pleasure. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
