The Echoing Horn

Five short stories about hunting.

The blurb:

‘The origins of Echoing Horn is suggested by the verses which are printed at the front of the book. They were written immediately after the crisis of September 1938. That crisis passed, as other crises have passed before, but in that mood the author wrote the narrative which follows….Each of its five chapters contains one of those never-to-be-forgotten experiences that are told when sportsmen get together, or are re-lived in memory when sporting days are over … successes and failures in the hunting field, and on turf and moor. In another sense, too, this is a book of echoes for, from year to year, conditions are changing and old sporting traditions can no longer be carried on from father to son.’
