From fall to spring, J.A. Baker set out to track the daily comings and goings of a pair of peregrine falcons across the flat fen lands of eastern England. He followed the birds obsessively, observing them in the air and on the ground, in pursuit of their prey, making a kill, eating, and at rest, activities he describes with an extraordinary fusion of precision and poetry. And as he continued his mysterious private quest, his sense of human self slowly dissolved, to be replaced with the alien and implacable consciousness of a hawk. It is this extraordinary metamorphosis, magical and terrifying, that these beautifully written pages record.

Peregrine

Review:

Not just for twitchers: his style is dynamic, vivid, startling, and so beautiful that you'll read each sentence over and over. --Country Walking

A great piece of nature writing that brilliantly evokes the Essex landscape. --Countryfile
