Heather Posted December 14, 2008 Report Share Posted December 14, 2008 Starting in 2009, Outrun Press will be reprinting out-of-print titles that are of interest to the working sheepdog community. (Send us your suggestions for your favorite out of print titles, and we'll look into them!). Our first reprint is now available, and we're very pleased to present it. SHEEPDOG GLORY, written by Roy Saunders, was originally published in 1956, and it's a wonderful book to curl up with by the fire. Our new edition also includes a preface by David Rees, who knew the author personally. The books should be ready to ship toward the end of the coming week. We'll mail out any orders we get this week immediately (first-class mail), so with a little luck, orders sent next week can still arrive by Christmas. Here's some more information about the book, from the original book jacket: *** Originally published in 1956, SHEEPDOG GLORY is the true biography of Toss, a border collie owned by Roy Saunders and trained by him for stardom in the annual sheepdog trials. Toss's education is described from the moment the scraggy puppy revealed his astonishing instinct for working sheep to the day when he triumphantly justified his master's faith in him during his first trials season. Roy Saunders tells the story of Toss within the framework of a shepherd's year, with its dramas of raiding foxes and sheep buried in snow, its happy moments at lambing time, and its many tasks and responsibilities. These combine to make the real "glory" of Toss's life, beyond his triumphs in the eyes of the public. This book brings to life the moving, ancient partnership between dog and man, so critical to the working life of a hill shepherd. **** For ordering information, check out the following link: http://www.outrunpress.com/catalogue.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
