'This is not merely a new and fascinating book about birds of prey. It is a study of the habits and characteristics of wild-bird life - from the woods of the South Downs near the Author's home, to the distant haunts of eagles in the far north of Scotland. These "feathered outlaws", sometimes extremely rare, and always difficult of approach, are written of and pictured here with great skill and sympathy.'
