The Daughter of Bugle Ann, which picks up where the first volume, The Voice of Bugle Ann, leaves off, is, in our opinion, even better than the first.
Benjy Davis is now married to Camden Terry. "A match made by a 30-30 rifle," says old Cal Royster. "A match made in heaven," says Mrs. Royster. In either case, it was a perfect match that would have been destroyed forever by Benjy's hard-headedness, were it not for Camden's secret, the full truth of which was unknown even to her until old Springfield Davis divined the mystery of the no-account bristly-faced dog.
Bestselling author, McKinlay Kantor (1904-1977) is the author of many fictional works not only on foxhunting, but also on the Civil War. These include Long Remember, Gettysburg, and Andersonville.
"Dog fanciers would do well to check out the new edition from Derrydale Press."—Charlotte Observer
"A high-headed woman, a hard-headed man, a legendary hunting dog and voices from the past that ring like the music from a pack running hard on a scent make this reissued MacKinlay Kantor novel of mountain folk irresistable."—Lee Milazzo, The Dallas Morning News
"Here is a classic tale of 1930s rural America by a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who knew his foxhounds, the old bloodlines, and life in the Missouri hills, and who produced in two small volumes perhaps the greatest foxhound fiction ever written."—Masters of Foxhounds Association
"Anyone who's ever heard the glorious chorus of a pack of American foxhounds at full cry - or even if you haven't - will appreciate Cantor's stories about an American pastime that's nearly slipped away and the ancestors of the hounds we follow today"—John Strassburger, Chronicle of the Horse
