b01lwmgka9 The Thoroughbred Racing Pigeon: by J. Kilpatrick (Author)
The Thoroughbred Racing Pigeon: by J. Kilpatrick (Author) (B01LWMGKA9)

One of the rarest books in the racing pigeon literature, and it is among the most important. 

This valuable addition to the fancier's library is a mine of information for every fancier whether experienced or a beginner.  The first edition was a sensation revised by Victor Kirkpatrick after his father Jack's death.  That revision has been out of print of some time but is not reprinted in a library edition in response to continued demands.

The author had a lifetime's experience in the corn trade and his chapters on feeding are especially recommended.  His chapters on bird flight are also outstanding but for many the greatest benefit of the book is the simple statement of methods leading to success.

0841502404 The Scandaroon: by Henry Williamson (Author)
The Scandaroon: by Henry Williamson (Author) ( 9780841502406 )

In this sensitive story of a brave pigeon and the people of Devon, Henry Williamson fully explores the delicate balance of the tame and wild elements that co-exist in life and the possibilities of man's relationship with nature. 

The Scandaroon is found by Sam Baggott on board a ship just pulled into the Devon harbor.  She is one of a strong breed of homing pigeons from the Baltic.  Fond of pleasures similar to man's these birds enjoy their own mates, their own lofts and good food.  Guided by the passing of time and the angle of the sun these pigeons will have dangers of gales and preying hawks to return home as quickly as possible. 

Sam Baggott is not a cruel man, simply uncaring and he can see no harm in baiting the beautiful bird with strips of poisoned meat to lure the hawks that menace the other pigeons.  During one of these flights the Scandaroon is wounded.  She is found by the tow doctor who tends her until her injuries have healed, and Peter a gentle young boy assist in healing her.  

Each year at Mid summer Revel, the residents of Devon hold races pitting these pigeons against each others to rest their homing instincts.  Only man could devise such sport and only man could think up.  The contest shows tellingly the differences between man and bird - the one so aggressive and manipulative the others so stoic and accepting.  

the glorious intricacies of nature and man's futile attempt to understand its find mechanism of spirit and intuition are captured in this heartwarming story of the Scandaroon and her effect on the people who care for her.
