Falconer, naturalist and outstanding example of a human being, Frances Hamerstrom influenced many of today's falconers. A privileged group of your contemporaries remember the Hamerstroms with great fondness and are proud to consider themselves "Gabboons." The author had a long term relationship with Frances and her husband, "Hammy," and documents their exciting lives working to conserve raptors and prairie chickens. A nuanced account of the labors, adventures and achievements that distinguished the Hamerstroms over the years and inspired a generation of naturalists, this book also provides a dramatic account of conservation history over the course of the twentieth century.
