Excerpt from the Preface:
"...Hound in the Hills is compelling precisely because Briggs makes us realize that hunting smaller varmints back East can just as readily get your blood up and into the race. Briggs is particularly strong with fox hunting, both speedy red fox and the tricky, tree climbing gray. Plus he takes us 'coon hunting, 'possum hunting, snowshoe hare and cottontail rabbit hunting, with hounds tall and short; redbone, black and tan, and lemon and white; cold trailers and hard drivers that take the scent out of the air; the fine-bred and registered and a host of pot-lickers. Always, Briggs literate enthusiasm will bring you into the race."
