Grieving Author Focuses Attention On Goshawk

Helen Macdonald has had a longtime love of falconry and training birds for years. But she had yet to attempt training what’s known as a goshawk, known as a vicious predator. When Macdonald’s father died suddenly one year, she decided to try.

Macdonald described what happened next and her process of grieving in her book “ H is for Hawk.” She joined Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss it earlier this year.
