Promotional Information

By turns comic and tragic, this is an all-absorbing journal of a concentrated duel and intense clash of wills between the author and a great hawk he is training.

About the Author

Terence Hanbury White (1906-1964) was born in Bombay, India, and educated at Queen's College, Cambridge. Along with The Goshawk, White was the author of twenty-six published works, including his famed sequence of Arthurian novels, The Once and Future King; a collection of essays on the eighteenth century, The Age of Scandal; and a translation of a medieval Latin bestiary, A Book of Beasts. Marie Winn's column on nature and bird-watching appeared for twelve years in The Wall Street Journal, and she has written on diverse subjects for The New York Times Magazine and Smithsonian.

Reviews

"his prose is so breathtaking I find myself reeling as I read, and the falconry vocabulary is like an incantation." -- Sarah Perry The Gloss 'I read this when I was 17 and everything in the book - the cottage in the wood, White's loneliness, the untameable, beautiful bird, and above all the intricate awareness of the countryside - struck a deep resonance. Still does' -- Monty Don The Week
