Thus begins the tale by Stephen Bodio, a lover of birds and nature, of the connection between man and birds of prey. Falconry can be traced back over four thousand years and, as Bodio says, "it is amazing that the practice did not die out soon afterward when its first adherents starved". With a new introduction by Helen MacDonald, A Rage for Falcons not only shares the history of falconry, but shows how and why falconry has lasted. As Bodio notes in his introduction: "To understand falconry, you must understand the nature of the relationship between man and bird". In A Rage for Falcons, Bodio explores this relationship and how it has affected him as a person.
