Not dog related, but . . . by Helen MacDonald is the author, a British woman who writes about her love of falconry. Beginning at an early age, (9?) she was in love with falcons. Pestered her parents until they let her go out with some men they knew who flew falcons.
This autobiographical book got started as a result of MacDonald's father's sudden death. She references The Goshawk, by T. H. White, a favorite author of mine as a teenager. Now I've got to go see if the library has that.
I'm enjoying it immensely - hard to put it down to turn off the light last night. If anyone else reads it, let me know what you think. I think I saw it recommended on Terrierman's blog.
