Grammatical and spelling errors abound as well.
Though aspects of the legal system do not apply in countries other than the U.S., NAF&HH remains the single most comprehensive book written on modern falconry, and perhaps the second most comprehensive ever written on the subject. I'm a professional writer, author, and have been flying raptors for well over 30 years (nearly 40, now) and I have been unable to begin to put together a book on the subject, for fear that I'll miss one of the many facets that go into each decision made about the hawk while interacting with it. The sheer sum of all the information that comes into play at one time is daunting. Yet Hal and Frank managed to present that information to us in analog order, and produce a book which has guided many thousands of falconers to success over the past 4 decades.
If you could have only one book on raptors, this would have to be that book.
P.S. Though Amazon claims that it is out of print, Hal Webster continues to publish this book. Western Sporting Goods is amongst the vendors who can acquire it, and Hal may still sell it directly as well.
P.P.S. I should also add that it is written by Hal Webster & Frank Beebe. I've no idea how Joe Rotondo came to be in the credits.
