The well illustrated contents include: Historical References - Using Terriers with Foxhounds - Attributes of a Good Working Terrier - Opinions and Yarns - Hunt Terriers in the USA - In India - Hunting in China - On Earth Stopping and Artificial Earths - Question of Pedigree - Question of Coats - Breeders Opinions - Otterhound Packs - A Day with Border Terriers and Otterhounds - Otter Hunting with Terriers - The Rev. Jack Russell and his Terriers - The Old English Black and Tan Terrier - The Border Terrier - The Fox Terrier - Lakeland, Fell or Patterdale Terrier - Norwich or Trumpington Terriers - Scottish Terriers as Workers - The Sealyham Terrier - Training Terriers for Underground Work - Fox and Badger Digging - How to Dig and Take Foxes and Badgers - How to Work Bassetts - Badger Digging - Rats, Stoats, Hares and Rabbits - Boar Hunting with Terriers - Big Game Hunting with Terriers - Breeders - Clubs etc. Many of the earliest dog and hunting books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
