Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this colorful volume, third-generation falconer Parry-Jones opens up the fascinating world of keeping and training birds of prey. The text is instructive both as background and as instruction for the aspiring keeper of owls, buzzards, falcons, eagles, and hawks; and the dramatic illustrations of the various birds give the book an appeal that extends beyond the hobbyists who constitute its primary intended audience. Comprehensive and clearly written, this is a fine introduction to falconry and its related fields of endeavor, as well as something of a coffee-table book for readers who appreciate the natural world. Mike Tribby

4.0 out of 5 stars Training birds of prey - Jemima Parry-Jones August 15, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:Hardcover
Much the same as her previous " Falconry Care, Captive breeding and Conservation" - but was well worth doing as is underlines serious points and issues. On the whole a very good book with excellent information and photography. The author does as with the last book seem to have a very high opinion of herself and holds herself up as THE FALCONER in Britain today.
I was concerned that the author also seems to put the notion across that her Falconry Centre is the only good one in the country and that everyone else is just either playing at it or only in it to make money - as if she isn't what with at least two books, courses, displays etc... I do believe that she holds the welfare of the birds as her highest priority, but this can only be maintained with adequate finance as is the situation with everyone else.
Note : Cover picture - Buzzard only held by one Jess 2nd page in - one of the jesses is not secured properly to the swivel, preventing the swivel from working properly.. Pages 78,79 and 81, these are surely unhelpful pictures to put on public view - a falcon shying away and hanging from the fist.The anti-hunting lobby would love this.
