Green cloth, more than Norman blood into England - they brought with them their hounds and all the art and rituals of venery which have persisted through the years to the present day. For centuries hounds have been stitched into the tapestry of British sporting history and there are few living creatures which have been bred to such a peak of perfection as the English Foxhound. The Book of the Hound covers a wide field, from the historical background to obedience training in the home, written for the owners of Beagles and Bassetts. An admirable successor to the author's The Book of the Greyhound, it will interest not only those engaged actively in hunting, breeding and training hounds but the folk who enjoy watching the intricacies of scent and hound work".
