Legends Pigeon Racing - JIM EMERTON
From simple and humble beginnings, the evolution of Jim Emerton’s wonderful life in close harmony with nature and pigeons has been an exciting and intense experience. There is nothing more beautiful than to perceive that bird as it wings back to the home of its birth after a flight of great distance from far away lands. It is the end result of years of study, toil and dedication which stimulates the heart and mind to the core which Jim describes as a spiritual and mystical feeling of wonder and awe for the power of nature.
In this film Jim bares his soul about the details of practical pigeon racing and touches on the complexity and mystery that drives hardened men to revere the pigeon and to dedicate a life to their cultivation.
Special thanks to Jim Emerton and also to Chris Booth and Steve Shipley for their contribution to a great film of historical significance that will entertain many people over time.
