Synopsis: Falconry, the sport of kings, is today experiencing a keen revival, with 100,000 falconers hawking in 68 countries. Better organized, regulated and funded than it ever has been during the past century, falconry is here to stay. Sky Hunters: The passion of Falconry traces the history of this magnificent sport, separating myth from reality while highlighting its colorful characters.
Lavishly illustrated, this book brings to life the true spirit of falconry through time to the present. Sky Hunters is a treasury of information and a visual feast for falconers and those interested in nature, hunting, birds of prey, art, photography, history, sociology, conservation, and last but not least, human drama.
