Squirrel Hawking in Appalachia chronicles a hunting season of two falconers flying two hen red-tailed hawks in central West Virginia.  Written from the point-of-view of one of the falconers in a memoir-like style, the book takes readers into the often misunderstood world of falconry, revealing its hardships and well-earned victories with sometimes embarrassing transparency.  While the book covers technical aspects of the sport and includes many valuable lessons for young falconers, it’s also a great book for those interested in what falconry is all about.  If you’re interested in learning how responsible hunting practices and birds of prey come together in the sport of falconry, order your copy of Squirrel Hawking in Appalachia today!
