We are thrilled to bring these two best-selling authors back to MainStreet BookEnds


This time for the release of a book these two best friends have written together


Sunday, October 1 at 2 pm


Sy Montgomery


author of the current Top 10 best seller The Soul of an Octupus, and The Good, Good Pig


and Elizabeth Marshall Thomas


author of such classics as The Hidden Life of Dogs, The Harmless People, and Dreaming of Lions


for their first collaboation


Close Encounters of the Animal Kind


The Boston Globe describes Sy Montgomery as "part Indiana Jones, part Emily Dickinson."


New York Times says Elizabeth Marshall Thomas "writes using all five senses and at times seems to have access to that magical sixth."


And in her forward, Vicki Constantine Croke writes that they "help move us closer to being better humans - by making wild things what they should be: our soul mates."

Please Join Us in The Gallery


for a very special afternoon with best-selling author


Nancy Cowan


Peregrine Spring











(photo by Chris Short)







We will be joined by her very special guest, Banshee.


Now in paperback!

  • A New York Times bestseller
  • Winner of the Best Book of 2016, New England Outdoor Writers Association
  • Foreword by bestselling authors Sy Montgomery and Elizabeth Marshall Thomas


Peregrine Spring gives readers a new perspective on the relationship between humans and the natural world. Cowan’s raptors have immersed her so much into their world that she has found herself courted by a Goshawk and bossed about by a Harris’ Hawk. The book carries her readers along, so they, too, meet hawks and falcons in ways they never imagined possible.

Nancy Cowan is a master falconer, wildlife rescue expert, and award-winning writer. She and her husband founded the internationally-known New Hampshire School of Falconry.

As a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Nancy has worked with a variety of hawk and falcon species which have been injured or orphaned and frequently is consulted by local wildlife rehab centers and New Hampshire Audubon Society on the care and rehabilitation of injured birds.
