3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Trollope 12 Feb. 2013
By Algypop
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vivid descriptions of hunting and hunting characters in nineteenth century. A lack of sympathy for the fox disturbingly pervades. He appeal much more as a novelist, where his humanity predominates - and even in the hunting scenes in these, there is less lurid satisfaction in the kill.

4.0 out of 5 stars A short look back at English fox hunts 27 Jan. 2011
By Erik_L - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A short (738 location) look at the cast of a typical English fox hunt. This interesting psycho-sociological dissertation looks at the eight main characters of these events. The chapters are: The Man Who Hunts and Doesn't Like It, The Man Who Hunts and Does Like it, The Lady Who Rides to Hounds, The Hunting Farmer, the Man Who Hunts and Never Jumps, The Hunting Parson, The Master of Hounds, and How to Ride to Hounds. The book is written in a manner to educate, not criticize or lampoon. The manner is very proper, as it should be and I found myself utilizing the Kindle's built in dictionary at least once each chapter.
I found it a very informative read on the customs of England in the late 19th Century. If you enjoy the writings of that time, I strongly suggest it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fox hunting 8 Jan. 2014
By widowson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An outstanding example of the nearly lost art of fox hunting to hounds. Since being made illegal in England, one must now go to the United States. Unfortunately the yanks have an entirely different tradition and mindset. Oh for days gone by...
