"Sy Montgomery has such a gift of communicating with the unknowable animals in our world. From the pig to the octopus, and every creature in-between, Sy translates her learning and love onto the page for us. The Hawk's Way is a fine example of this gift. A small volume that tells the tale of a woman learning about and learning from these amazing predators. Dangerous and unpredictable, the strength and determination of a hawk is awe inspiring. Seeing the hunt from up-close through Sy's eyes is like being there, without the torn pants and muddy boots."--Reviewed by Jennifer
A splendid and luminous celebration of one of nature's most perfect and mysterious creatures--the hawk--from the New York Times bestselling author of the astoundingly beautiful (NPR) The Soul of an Octopus. When Sy Montgomery went to spend a day at falconer Nancy Cowan's farm, home to a dozen magnificent birds of prey, it was the start of a deep love affair. Nancy allowed her to work with Jazz, a feisty, four-year-old, female Harris's hawk with a wingspan of more than four feet. Not a pet, Jazz was a fierce predator with talons that could pierce skin and bone and yet, she was willing to work with a human to hunt. From the first moment Jazz swept down from a tree and landed on Sy's leather gloved fist, Sy fell under the hawk's magnetic spell. Over the next few years, Sy spent more time with these magnificent creatures, getting to know their extraordinary abilities and instincts. They are deeply emotional animals, 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 sixteen pages of gorgeous color photographs, Sy passionately and vividly reveals the wonderous world of hawks and what they can teach us about nature, life, and love.
