Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This authoritative book is aimed at all pigeon enthusiasts, particularly those who participate in racing them at distances greater than five hundred miles. It encourages the reader to view the humble pigeon in a different light, gaining a deeper appreciation of the enormous joy and satisfaction that can be gained from long-distance pigeon racing. In addition to the interviews with both British and Continental lofts, features covered include acquisition of stock, health and immunity, loft management, and pairing and exercising of the birds.  

About the Author

John Clements started racing pigeons as a schoolboy in 1952. He went on to break new ground when, in cooperation with Jos Thone of Belgium, he compiled a series of books listing the results and the methods used by winning Continental and British fanciers. John has successfully flown pigeons in most major UK long-distance races and for the last three years has competed in the Entente Belge Intgernational Dax. He is a serious and dedicated commentator on the sport and writes a regular weekly column in British Homing World.
