This book brings together over 250 photographs of the National sheepdog champions from the start of the International Sheep Dog Society's National Trials in 1922 (Ireland 1961) to 1993. Barbara Carpenter molds the collection together with sections of commentary giving information about handlers and their dogs. Pedigree charts showing the main border collie bloodlines and full details about the National and International trial courses are also included. Anyone with an interest in the border collie or the world of sheepdog trialing will enjoy this book. Barbara Carpenter was a sheepdog trialist in England, where she lived into her nineties, and sadly died in 2013. She was the breeder of Brocken Robbie, a very important sire in the Border Collie pedigree. Her books are pivotal works for those interested in the history of the breed.
