Today 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." (Rebroadcast)
