True to the Line is Adrian Dangar's recollections of his life at the sharp end of hunting, during which he was a Master and huntsman of three very different hunts in three unique regions of England - Dartmoor, North Yorkshire and Leicestershire. During this time, the author came into close contact with many fascinating characters that live and work in these beautiful landscapes.
True to the Line portrays these rural lives alongside hunting, hounds and foxes, together with the challenges, frustrations and rewards of organising modern hunting in an illuminating and anecdotal style. This book not only covers his account as the first amateur huntsman of the Quorn in 80 years, but also his time as hunting correspondent, hound judge, conservationist and all round countryman.
Adrian Dangar has travelled extensively throughout Africa, South America and Asia on numerous writing and travel assignments, and is a regular contributor to Country Life, The Field Magazine and Horse & Hound. His first book, True to the Line (9781846892448), was published by Quiller in 2017. Adrian lives in rural North Yorkshire with his wife and family and enjoys fieldsports, travelling and the countryside.
