Recollections of Lakeland hunting in the '50s and '60s. This first volume is an introduction to further, larger volumes which will be compiled from the popular web site Lakeland Hunting Memories established three years ago by Ron Black and Wendy Fraser. Here are some pages that are soon to be archived.

Ron Black, the author, says, "I am a native Lakelander with roots going back to 1700, the 4th generation to follow hounds, with ancestors who stood on the cold tops at dawn, moved the heavy Lakeland stone to free trapped terriers and also 'carried the horn' on occasions. Hunting will not come back in the foreseeable future, perhaps not at all, but for three hundred years hunting and the church were the central thread to many communities. This is a part of the story."

REVIEWS
Do not be put off by the word Hunting in the title.
The book has wonderful descriptions of the Lake District and will take you to places you know or will want to visit. I think your views on hunting will be irrelevant and your interest in the countryside will be increased. Quite short, so enjoy and hope for more.

A series of "soon to be archived" pieces from the popular web site of the same name, a bit short but at 0.68 pence well worth a taster.
