Sky Hunters : The Passion of Falconry, Hardback Book

Sky Hunters : The Passion of Falconry Hardback


Falconry, the sport of kings, is today experiencing a keen revival, with 100,000 falconers hawking in sixty-seven countries.

Better organized and funded than at any other time over the past century, falconry is here to stay.

Packed with 870 colour images, this book brings to life the true spirit of falconry throughout history, from its origins in the Near East in the 3rd millennium BC to contemporary Arab Sheikhs' elaborate hawking parties.

Sky Hunters is a magic carpet ride produced for falconers and those interested in nature, hunting, birds of prey, art, photography, history, society, conservation and, last but not least, human drama.
