Book Review: The Hawk's Way

The Hawk’s Way: Encounters with Fierce Beauty
By Sy Montgomery
Atria Books 79pp

Hawks are everywhere in the Pacific Northwest and a sight to behold. Imagine a creature so powerful that it regards human beings as junior hunting partners. I consider Hawks to be an omen of glad tidings and an insouciant face of God. Every time I spot a Hawk in a tree or on a wire, casting a glance in my direction, I feel a touch of awe. Sy Montgomery’s exquisite writing adds drama and dimension to the Hawk’s Way: “Hunt hard. Kill Swiftly. Waste Nothing. Offer no apologies.”
