Details Lisa’s extraordinary experience of embarking on the journey of a lifetime. She brings a multitude of passions for wildlife and the outdoors to a whole new level, combining her interests in falconry, pursuit of furbearing game and hunting, horseback riding, working with pelts, and exploration of rugged and beautiful terrain, into this story of grand adventure. Her exploits entail following the Kazakh hunters on horseback in the remote Altai Mountains of western Mongolia, one of the coldest places on earth, while in pursuit of fox and rabbit. The Kazakhs continue to follow their traditional ways as they did in ancient times, hunting for sustenance using trained wild golden eagles to subdue their prey. The golden eagle is one of the largest and most powerful of all the raptor species. Hunting of furbearing game is done only in winter, when pelts are of best quality. Learning the skills involved in the capture, training, and use of their eagles in a hunting partnership is a wonderful opportunity to witness an ancient tradition in modern times. In our current fast-paced and technologically advancing society, many of us have all forgotten the bonds we once shared with wildlife, and the difficulties of surviving in the wilderness. This account is an eye-opening glimpse into the past. It is Lisa’s hope that this story will encourage others to take chances in life, and to seek out their own adventures.
