Beaches Book Club: H is for Hawk

  • Toronto Public Library Beaches (map)

The Beaches Book Club discusses H is for Hawk, a classic of nature writing by Helen MacDonald

When her father dies and she is knocked sideways by grief, she becomes obsessed with the idea of training her own goshawk. She buys Mabel for £800 on a Scottish quayside and takes her home to Cambridge. Then she fills the freezer with hawk food and unplugs the phone, ready to embark on the long, strange business of trying to train this wildest of animals.
