"I had intended [this book] to be a little volume comprising my own opinions and experiences. The field was a virgin one. There has never been a book on hunt terriers. Consequently I determined to make it as good a one as I possibly could, and with this object in view I wrote to every Master of fox and otter hounds in the world whose names appear in Bailey's 'Hunting Directory,' asking for details of their terriers and for any opinion they might desire to express. Incidentally, I visited many kennels. The results are set forth in this volume." Chapters include; mainly historical; use of terriers with foxhounds; attributes of a good working terrier; "in my experience"; opinions and yarns; terriers in the USA; terriers in India; hunting in China; earth stoppers, stopping and artificial earths; pedigree; coats; breeders' opinions; otter hound packs; a day with Border terriers and otter hounds; otter hunting with terriers; a fox-terrier pack in British East Africa; the Rev. Jack Russell and his terriers; the Old English black-and-tan; the Border terrier; Lakeland, Fell or Patterdale; the Norwich or Trumpington; Scottish terriers as workers; the Sealyham; training terriers for work underground; fox and badger digging by Count Jacques du Fouilloux; foxes, badgers and otters in France and Germany; a modern badger dig in France; badger hunting by night; rats, stoats, hares, rabbits; boar hunting with terriers; big game with terriers; hints on kennel management; useful appendices. The classic work on the subject, and well worth a read. N° de ref. de la librería 28322
