A compelling memoir by the naturalist and scientist who has dedicated his life to the study and protection of falcons.\r\n
This is the story of a naturalist who spent 50 some years studying the peregrine falcon in its various breeding locations around the world such as Utah, Alaska, South America, Australia, Fiji, etc. The peregrine is a cosmopolitan species that really is only absent as a breeder from a few areas in the world. Because many populations of falcons are migratory, the species in reality probably occurs in over 80% of the globe at one time or another. The narrative is taken from Clayton White's field notes and relates experiences that took place during his 50 years of global travel. The story integrates the ethics of landscape stewardship along with information about the falcon itself in various geographic locations. Illustrated with color photos throughout.
