"Everyone has their favorite among hounds and hunting books but Slash Ranch Hounds is certainly among the best in any section. It is very strong on the intricate workings of hound in pursuit of scent. While not a "how-to" book, any dog man can benefit from Evan's training tips and hunting techniques, most told within the context of stories. And Dub Evans was simply a good writer, who could render an exciting chase that we can feel today without need for all tales and exaggerations. From long experience following the hounds horseback in wild country, he knew that an honest recall of actual events was the best story of all.
From the Preface by M.H Salmon"
A New Mexico classic, hounds, lion hunts, bear and more. Lots of New Mexico history and color.
