America at last : the American journal of T.H. White by T. H White( Book )

7 editions published in 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late author of The Once and Future King, sire of Camelot, came to the United States on a lecture tour shortly before his death. Accompanied by an eighteen-year-old chaperone-guide, affectionately obeyed and respected, he flew about the nation addressing school, university, civic groups (he very seldom alludes to the contents of his recitations.) He found Manhattan ""a small city in the horizontal... only enormous vertically,"" New Orleans ""the greatest town in America for gourmets,"" loved San Francisco, was awed with Utah--""out of the brain of Brigham Young."" America was indeed a foreign land--where everything over twenty-five years old seemed to count as an antique, where, ""in Long Island, fishermen can buy live worms from slot machines!"" Yet the discovery here is more on the part of the author than the American reader, who finds himself in the company of a pleasant gentleman with no major insights to impart. If one wishes a memento of the author, here it is, along with a fond remembrance that gives a perspective on his personality. --From Kirkus Reviews
The goshawk by T. H White( Book )

66 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is it that binds human beings to other animals? T. H. White, the author of The Once and Future King and Mistress Masham's Repose, was a young writer who found himself rifling through old handbooks of falconry. A particular sentence-"the bird reverted to a feral state"-seized his imagination, and, White later wrote, "A longing came to my mind that I should be able to do this myself. The word 'feral' has a kind of magical potency which allied itself to two other words, 'ferocious' and 'free.'" Immediately, White wrote to Germany to acquire a young goshawk. Gos, as White named the bird, was ferocious and Gos was free, and White had no idea how to break him in beyond the ancient (and, though he did not know it, long superseded) practice of depriving him of sleep, which meant that he, White, also went without rest. Slowly man and bird entered a state of delirium and intoxication, of attraction and repulsion that looks very much like love. White kept a daybook describing his volatile relationship with Gos-at once a tale of obsession, a comedy of errors, and a hymn to the hawk. It was this that became The Goshawk, one of modern literature's most memorable and surprising encounters with the wilderness-as it exists both within us and without
