Autumn Personification Poem. Since I was a child, I've loved the season of autumn

Autumn Personification Poem. Since I was a child, I've loved the season of autumn. I love its return each year with its vibrant magical colors, warm bright days, the change from the heat of summer into cool but crystal clear sparkling nights, and the aroma of the woods and spice in the atmosphere. It's like a familiar loved one or friend who's back for a visit.

In a simple, sharp voice, he here describes Dolly's peculiar coming-of-age, as man and beast follow the classic migratory route of the peregrine falcon from the high Rockies to the Gulf Coast. onto her hapless prey.

Save bookmarks and read as many as you like. Mobsters, Monsters & Nazis.

The author's account of a 2000-mile journey from the Canadian border to the Mexican Gulf, with a young peregrine falcon he rescued from the wild. His purpose was to teach her to survive on her own. It is the story of one man's personal quest, searching for a balance between the wild and domesticity. Dan O'Brien has also written a novel, "Spirit of the Hills" and a collection of short stories, "Eminent Domain". He won the University of Iowa Short Fiction Award in 1986.

Dan O'Brien is at his best when writing about birds of prey. Having previously read Equinox I knew what to expect from O'Brien. He is one of the few falconers who writes about falconry in a way that is accessible to those who are unfamiliar with the artform. However, even a basic knowledge of raptors and falconry will make this book all the more enjoyable.

Dan writes about these birds with such passion and it's no wonder why he indulges so deeply in such an obsession; to see a peregrine in action is special. He masterfully illustrates the act of hunting with peregrines. I read these passages over and over again, slowly, savoring each word, then closing my eyes to see for myself the hunt that every falconer lives for. It's pure literary gold.

It's not only his ability to describe peregrines in the context of falconry, but their history, mythology, ecology and conservation. The novel begins with O'Brien and a team of field biologists working for the Peregrine Fund at a hack site in the northern Rockies. Having had their site raided by a golden eagle, Dan takes the only remaining falcon and attempts to create a healthy, wild, releasable falcon out of a timid captive-reared peregrine. He simulates the fall migration, driving south with the peregrine and hunting along the way.

Between significant events in the book, the author delves into a melange of subjects such as the ecology of the prairie, dog training, small-town high school football, gun hunting and the necessity of solitude and wide-open spaces. One gets the sense that ultimately this is a book about a man trying to cope with the ever-changing American west.

But he never strays too far from birds of prey.

Falconers, hawk watchers, ornithologists, rehabbers, conservationists and raptor lovers in general will all find something valuable within the pages of this book. It is my hope that those with no previous experience or knowledge of these creatures will discover how precious and awesome they are as well.

Wonderful, soaring and descriptive narrative on falcons and falconry. The story also has some sad parts, as well.
Nikok
Good narrative of a dream that almost came true.
Teonyo
If you like the Great Plains, falcons and people with wild souls, this book is just the ticket. His observations about our place in the natural world are right on target and remind me very much of Aldo Leopold's ideas. Super good read.
Uylo
A lyrical memoir of the best sort. Highly recommended for anyone interested in falconry, falcons, or nature writing. The author's other books (Equinox; Buffalo for the Broken Heart) are likewise wonderful.
