Extreme sports.

So, the latest topic about which I'll be shoehorning tidbits into whatevs: falconry! Which is, of all things, totally still practiced. The book is Falconer on the Edge: A Man, His Birds, and the Vanishing Landscape of the American West, by Rachel Dickinson.
You'd think my being generally freaked out by birds (their little skittery feet! the unthinkable juncture of feather and pebbly skin!) would have kept me away from this title. But kestrels, especially, sound sort of cute.
