    "A Transcription of Two Important 16th Century Books on Training the Goshawk and Sparrowhawk for Falconry." An Approved Treatise of Hawks and Hawking by Edmund Bert [1619] and A Perfect Booke for Kepinge of Sparhawkes or Goshawks by an unknown author [1575]. Transcribed and edited to present a useable, practical text to the modern falconer. Short-winged hawks "need to come to 'love their keeper' and both books ... excel in explaining how this behaviour is achieved and how faults such as hood-shyness, carrying, turning tail, extreme nervousness and how it can be cured."
