Book Signing: Squirrel Hawking in Appalachia
August 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for our first after hours author event! Local author Heather McNemar will be discussing and signing her new book, Squirrel Hawking in Appalachia.
Book Description –
Squirrel Hawking in Appalachia chronicles a hunting season of two falconers flying two hen red-tailed hawks in central West Virginia. Written from the point-of-view of one of the falconers in a memoir-like style, the book takes readers into the often misunderstood world of falconry, revealing its hardships and well-earned victories with sometimes embarrassing transparency. While the book covers technical aspects of the sport and includes many valuable lessons for young falconers, it’s also a great book for those interested in what falconry is all about
Note: This book contains detailed descriptions of the hunting and dispatching of wild game and may not be suitable for all readers.
