"This is a first-class book on sport and country life in a border county by a well-known contributor to Country Life and The Field. Few people are better qualified to write about the Border country and the ways and habits of its wild life; and Mr. Tegner writes with an impressive vividness, whether dealing with personal experiences of Foxes of Poachers, Roe Deer or Black Grouse, or the exigencies of an otter hunt. Little more need be said, except that the handsome production of this book for country-lovers is greatly enhanced by its very fine illustrations, from the pen of an artist whose work is famous for its power to capture the spirit of an outdoor scene, D.J. Watkins-Pitchford".
