“It's fierce, an' it's wild, an' it's not bothered about anybody, not even about me right. And that's why it's great.”
Barry Hines, A Kestrel for a Knave

“Look, there's Billy Casper there wi' his pet hawk. I could shout at 'em; it's not a pet, Sir, hawks are not pets. Or when folks stop me and say, "Is it tame?" Is it heck tame, it's trained that's all. It's fierce, and it's wild, an' it's not bothered about anybody, not even about me right. And that's why it's great.”
Barry Hines, A Kestrel for a Knave
