From the cover: “Falconry can be practised by anyone but it requires the skills of an expert to put you on the road to success. Diana Durman-Walters has twenty-five years’ experience of the sport and is just such an expert. In this book she writes about the hawks currently used in falconry and the use of falcons and their hybrids giving information on where, when and how to fly them. She describes the environment which is most appropriate for them and the quarry for which they are best suited. Gundogs are an essential part of the falconry team and there is a full section on breeds, their management, care and training from basic to advanced levels. This comprehensive book also covers, raptor breeding, displays, the law, clubs, falconry schools and equipment. There is also a complete section on veterinary care which has been written by a veterinary surgeon. Illustrated with specially commissioned colour photographs, this is the complete guide for the modern falconer.”
