The Peregrine

The Peregrine, which won the Duff Cooper Prize in 1967, recounts a single year from the author's ten?year obsession with the peregrines that wintered near his home in eastern England. The writing is lyrically charged throughout, as the author's role of diligent observer gives way to a personal transformation, as Baker becomes, in the words of James Dickey, "a fusion of man and bird."
