Salt Lake City, UT – Monday on RadioWest we're profiling one of America's greatest falconers, Steve Chindgren. Chindgren spends 6 months a year practicing his ancient sport on the sage prairies of Wyoming. Biographer Rachel Dickinson says it's not just about one man's passion though. Steve Chindgren hunts grouse with his hawks - and changes brought on by the mining and the energy industries could have a dire effect on them all. Chindgren and Dickinson join Doug to talk about the new book "Falconer on the Edge."

On Thursday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m., Rachel Dickinson and Steve Chindgren will be at The King's English Bookshop to present "Falconer on the Edge: A Man, His Birds, and the Vanishing Landscape of the American West." For more information, call the story at 801-484-9100 or click here
