"A compilation of hunting tales about the dogs to whom the author owes so much. It recalls events which took place before the hunting ban, as well as those of more recent years. It examines the close relationship between Penny and her dogs, their successes and failures, and disasters which sometimes befell those who tried their utmost each and every time they pursued their quarry. To the outsider, the non-hunter, it might seem as though we are obsessed with killing, but there is so much more to those that hunt with dogs and hounds than the race against death; so much more than simply being an observer of dogs dealing death to an animal, a creature we term prey. This book is dedicated to working dogs the world over."
