This is a celebration of the Peregrine. With the specially commissioned photographs of Piers Cavendish and the paintings and drawings of Anthony Rhodes this book describes the distribution and habitat of the peregrine across the world, its life-cycle, relationship with man and its potency as a cultural icon in many countries. Printed in four-colour throughout on art paper the book will examine the global distribution of the various species, the different names given to the peregrine by different countries and cultures. From there the book will focus on historical references to the peregrine, its links with the monarchy and its various cultural significances across the world, in art and literature, myth and fable. The rest of the book comprises a naturalistic description of the peregrine in the wild, its annual - and life-cycle, its interaction with man, the captive breeding of peregrines and their place in falconry. The final chapter will anticipate the future of the peregrine.
