Jean and Frank Jackson "trace the breed's history from its origins among Britain's native terrier breeds, through its development as a working terrier with the packs of foxhounds which hunt the Border country from which the breed takes its name. The campaign which resulted, in 1920, in official recognition for the breed, the formation of the first breed club and the development of the breed standard and its interpretation are all discussed... The authors' exhaustive research has uncovered a great deal of material which highlights aspects of the breed's past which remain relevant and important today. Many are matters which are endlessly discussed whenever the breed's enthusiasts gather together and which are important if the breed's superlative qualities are to be preserved in the future. Information is given... about caring for a Border Terrier from puppyhood to old age and there is sound advice, culled from their long and varied experience, about breeding and showing as well as about other activities in which the breed might become involved." Chapters include: In the beginning; At work; Towards recognition; Evolution of the standard; American standard; Early shows; Recognition to the War; Post-war years; Borders overseas; Good companions and more; Breeding and all that. An appendix lists British champions 1920-1987.
