Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sighthounds: Their Form, Their Function and Their Future is not another manual covering nutrition, training, breeding, care, and maintenance; rather, it is a celebration of the cursorial hunting dogs, those using speed and sight to hunt for man's cooking pot for over three millennia. Meticulously researched, it covers both British and foreign breeds, including some that are hardly known, covering their sporting past and arguing strongly for a sporting future for them. David Hancock challenges those who claim these dogs hunt solely by sight, describing their subtle use of scent and stressing their quite remarkable hearing as a hunting tool.

David is the author of nine previous book on dogs, and more than 750 articles published in national and international newspapers.
