"My regard for the peregrine dates from the day when, a young lad, I lay on my back and watched a dark speck hurtling high above Manchuria's black precipices. Red-beaked choughs were its prey, and as falcon talons struck on of their number lifeless and the falcon's battlecry rang across the peanut fields, I vowed one day I would own just such a winged terror as this." - opening paragraph.; 12mo 7" - 7" tall
