" The illustrations are simply gorgeous. The sidebars explaining falconry terms are very informative. Maybe a good candidate for the Siebert? " said.

" Medieval falconry is explored from an author who's father practiced the activity. I was impressed by the illustrations. The close up falcon feathers were life like. The spreads had a medieval painting feel to them and I appreciated the border on each page. This is part story and part inserted fact and it balances well. Not a story I have seen before. " said.
