About this title

Synopsis:

This revised and expanded edition covers all the AKC sighthound breeds, plus the coldbloods, staghounds, coyote hounds, lurchers, etc. From the farm fields of the Midwest through the wind-swept North Plains to the desert Southwest, join the author on hunts for jackrabbits, coyotes, fox, and cottontails with a variety of purebred and mixed-breed hounds. Meet some of the great old houndmen of the past and the legacy and lore they left behind. Learn the technique of the trailhound/sighthound combination hunt. Gazehounds & Coursing is provocative -- the author blasts the anti-hunters, insists on a strong conservation ethic, and says that some AKC breeds need an infusion of new blood to restore their working talents. Gazehounds & Coursing is evocative -- the author recounts great hounds he loved well who have crossed the great divide, and game animals he wishes in retrospect had gotten away. Above all, Gazehounds & Coursing is informative -- herein is the necessary methodology for choosing, raising, training, breeding, and running the lithe and graceful "longdogs."

Review:

We whose breath is taken by the sight of a pack of swift hounds sailing over the ground like unguided missiles should give a moment of thanks for the likes of M.H. Dutch Salmon. I suspect that most authors write more for the voice than the money, but I've never seen the trait more prominent than with the author of Gazehounds & Coursing. Dutch will write about the subjects that touch his passions, and never mind that the work is monumental, the audience small, and the pay smaller. Because of his passions, Gazehounds & Coursing is back in print, larger and more monumental than ever -- America's best and most complete representation of these ancient hounds of the hunt. -- Larry Mueller, Hunting Dogs Editor, Outdoor Life Magazine
