Reviews
"An eye-opening chronicle of interspecies cooperation and a gripping dramatization of how hard-won is the ideal balance between tameness and wildness . . . beautifully wrought."--Kirkus
"Dan O'Brien's Equinox is an improbably beautiful book about the life of a falconer. By comparison, it makes nearly all other sporting books look childishly simple. I can't recommend it too highly."--Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall
"It is O'Brien's internal revelations--the intimacies and elemental components of his being--that make Equinox generous and fascinating: a beautiful book."--Rick Bass, author of In the Loyal Mountains
"O'Brien keeps falcons pretty much at the center of things, so that his book gives what many a good book gives, a peek at a different way of living."--Booklist
"O'Brien is one of the West's stellar talents, and this is one of his finest books."--Publishers Weekly
"Equinox is a lyrical tale about the revelations of life, a story we haven't heard before told in crystalline prose."--Sandy Amazeen, Monsters and Critics-- (11/13/2010 12:00:00 AM)
