H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald

H is for

Reviewed by Marcy (Library Staff)

There is a richness of words and description as the author takes us through her process of recovering from the death of her father and delving into the world of falconry. Macdonald tells her story with parallel to T.H. White’s “The Goshawk”. I can presume someone who would enjoy this book would have a love of birds and the outdoors. If you follow close enough to live with the author as she reveals her experience you might like this book. I found the world of training her goshawk interesting. It may not appeal to everyone.
