H Is For Hawk by Helen MacDonald

The book is a profound and elegantly written memoir that intertwines the story of the author's journey through grief following her father's death with her decision to train a fierce goshawk named Mabel. As she confronts the challenges of falconry, the narrative explores themes of solitude, human connection to the natural world, and the process of healing. The author's experience with Mabel serves as a mirror to her inner turmoil, providing a raw and intimate examination of loss, while also offering insights into the history and art of falconry, and reflecting on the life of a notable historical figure who shared her passion for hawks.
