A passion for working lurchers has been the driving force behind this book. With many of their traditional skills now difficult to uphold within the law, there is the risk of losing honest experience of what lies at the heart of this tremendously versatile working dog. The author writes from the perspective of one who really has seen it and done it in all its glorious diversity, and has clearly loved every minute. With a wide and detailed background of training and entering to quarry, the author shares fascinating details and tales taken from her own days and nights of hunting with lurchers from the south coast to the northernmost tip of Scotland. Easy to read yet outstandingly informative, this book allows us to look over the author's shoulder and watch lurchers prowling round buries, working through thickets or stretched out at full pelt across open landscape. This book is for everyone who wants to know about lurchers working where results really count.
