Peregrine Spring, Nancy Cowan’s memoir of her thirty years living intimately with raptors, gives us a new perspective on the relationship between humans and the natural world. Cowan shares her experiences running a world-famous falconry school, and the lessons she’s learned from her birds. From retrieving her falcon from the local police “lock up,” to a heartbreaking race to save her young peregrine from attack by a wild hawk, Cowan’s life is a constant, ever-changing adventure. Cowan’s birds have immersed her so much into their world that she has found herself courted by a Goshawk and bossed about by a Harris’s Hawk. The book carries her readers along, so they, too, meet hawks and falcons in ways they never imagined possible.

This is not the most well written book. I had to stop at chapter 3 after an excruciatingly long account unnecessary detail about getting the salmon refill pass New Hampshire. Learning about their legislative process is not why I downloaded this book. The narrator is overly romantic through sections that are not romantic. It just didn't work for me.
