Reviews - What do customers think about Falconry Basics: A Handbook for Beginners?

Nice book  Feb 21, 2008
Not written for North Americans but I found this book very useful all the same. This book made a good introduction to falconry and it was a pleasure to read.
Falconry 101  Dec 8, 2006
Novices to falconry will find this book a most useful guide. Readers learn about accoutrements the falcons need along with training the falconer and the bird as well as raptor anatomy.

British readers will be up to speed on the laws about falconry, but for readers outside of the United Kingdom, other books will fill in on the legal aspects of falconry.

Falconry basics  Feb 23, 2006
I found this book to be very helpful for someone with little or no knowledge about
starting out in falconry. Most of my questions were answered and everything was
explained well.
Fine book for begining falconry  Aug 4, 2005
For someone just beginning to explore falconry (such as myself) this book is a top-notch starting guide. With extensive instructions on furniture, training, further reading and even hawk anatomy, this book gave me more than enough to get started. The only downside to this book was that the sections on falconry laws focus on British law. If you're not from the UK (as I am not) you will need to find another sourch for this information. Even so, this is a fine book for a beginer, and well worth the cost.
All the information you require.  Oct 5, 2004
When you find a book which claims to get down to the "Basics" of any subject - you should expect to find exactly that. Thankfully, this author understands what that words means and delivers the goods.

I am at the stage where my first bird is flying free and is being trained to hunt and, already, I have learned a great deal from this book. Not only is this an excellent book for beginners, I suspect many of those who think they "know it all" will find some useful information here. The artwork is simple and effective - and it works. The text is well written and easy-to-follow. All the different components of such essential items as, for example, the glove, hawking bag, hood, swing lure, creance (to name but five) are shown in the right amount of detail thus creating no confusion whatsoever.

The book itself measures 10in x 7½in (255mm x 190mm) and is packed with almost 250 pages of basic information about Falconry. Altogether, the author has covered every aspect of the sport from; The law, various birds, housing, equipment, furniture, handling, weights, food, training, travel, dogs, ferrets, fitness, illness, injury and lots more besides.

I would suggest this book is an essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone who keeps birds of prey no matter how experienced the keeper might be. In short, there is something here for everyone.
