Peregrine Spring by Nancy Cowan

2016. Peregrine Spring is Nancy Cowan's memoir of her thirty years living intimately with raptors. She gives us a new perspective on the relationship between humans and the natural world. Cowan shares her experiences running a world-famous falconry school, and the lessons she's learned from her birds. From retrieving her falcon from the local police 'lock up', to finding her husband in bed with a gyrfalcon, to a heart-breaking race to save her young peregrine from attack by a wild hawk, Cowan's life is a constant, ever-changing adventure.

"Nancy Cowan's Peregrine Spring is the best narrative of a modern falconer's life I know. It's not a how-to, though you can learn plenty from it. Nor does Nancy pose as an all-knowing 'Master', though she is a master---or mistress---of our ancient practice. What she does give us is a falconry pilgrim's progress, from beginner to teacher, with all the thrills and delights and sometimes horrors that accompany the journey."---STEVE BODIO, author of A Rage for Falcons and Eagle Dreams.
