The Hawk's Way
Encounters with fierce beauty
When Sy Montgomery went to falconer Nancy Cowan’s farm, home to a dozen birds of prey, she was allowed to work with Jazz, a feisty, four-year-old, female Harris’s hawk. Jazz was a fierce predator, willing to work with a human to hunt. From the first moment Jazz landed on Sy’s leather gloved fist, Sy fell under the hawk’s magnetic spell.
As Sy spent more time with these magnificent creatures, she learned they are quick to show anger and frustration, and can hold a grudge for years. But they are also loyal and intensely aware of their surroundings. In this mesmerizing account, featuring 16 pages of gorgeous color photographs, Sy vividly reveals the wonderous world of hawks and what they can teach us about nature, life, and love.
