Memoir of the summer and fall writer Dan O'Brien spent honing his falconry skills on his ranch in South Dakota
Dan O'Brien is the author of numerous novels and memoirs, including Stolen Horses, available in a Bison Books edition, as well as Buffalo for the Broken Heart: Restoring Life to a Black Hills Ranch and The Contract Surgeon, winners of the Western Heritage Award for best nonfiction in 2001 and for best fiction in 1999, respectively. Buffalo for the Broken Heart was selected as the 2009 One Book South Dakota winner.
"An eye-opening chronicle of interspecies cooperation and a gripping dramatization of how hard-won is the ideal balance between tameness and wildness ... beautifully wrought." Kirkus "Dan O'Brien's Equinox is an improbably beautiful book about the life of a falconer. By comparison, it makes nearly all other sporting books look childishly simple. I can't recommend it too highly." Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall "O'Brien is one of the West's stellar talents, and this is one of his finest books." Publishers Weekly
