In this highly entertaining autobiography the reader is introduced to many of the different animals and birds - not to mention a few of the people - who have enriched the author's life. He tells of his pioneer work breeding rare species in captivity, flying falcons for TV advertisements and travelling overland to Afghanistan. Illustrated with more than 50 of his own photographs, A Hawk in the Hand, displays Glasier's deep affinity with his birds, and his knowledge of their habits and needs.
