New....ratting With Terriers Book

Recommended Posts

Just to make everyone aware, the new book, A year with the Border Ratters... is due to be released early April 2017

 

A brief insight into the book;

 

The book covers a year travelling with the Border Ratters, a team of terrier lads based in Northumberland and Durham

 

Firstly, this is NOT a how to book, everyone on here knows how to kill a rat, and it would be insulting telling anyone, how to do it..

What the book is; a written and pictorial documentation of some of the highlights of the year that is written about.

 

How is it different to all the other ratting with terrier books available? well, the main focus is on the images in the book. Among them are probably some of the best rat hunting with terrier that has ever been seen in print.

 

Whats in it? This is a quality hardback book. There are 240 pages printed on high quality silk paper, almost 400 images, and over 27000 words. There are chapters on various breeds of terriers we took out during the year, including; Bedlingtons, Borders, JRT, Plummers, Patterdale and Lakeys, a working Westie and various crosses from some of these breeds. Each of these breeds has a chapter devoted to "how it went" and images of each breed.

There are chapters on; action shots, close ups, daylight work, lads and dogs in the throws hunting rats, etc etc etc

There is a chapter on "how we got the images", what camera used, which lenses, settings etc for anyone interested in having a go..

 

There is information on the breeds, some history of the individual dogs used and the guys that travelled with us, some of them from as far away as Wales.

 

These are some stories of some of the nights and days out, with accurate detail, and some humour

 

This is a limited print run, and for the time, it will not be available in book stores. It will be available online, through secure online purchasing, or via cheque. It will be made available on Amazon. The Border Ratters will also be visiting various shows over the season to promote the book.

 

There is a link here; for anyone wishing to order, or pre-order, http://www.billdoherty.co.uk/section839473.html

Or, please PM myself, WHWT or Staff for postal address for paying by cheque, or indeed any other imormation that you require.

Have a look at the link, as there is an online raffle for £1 with a chance to win a copy.

 

Thanks guys.

Hi rabbit hunter, it's not a limited edition but it's a fairly smallish print run,

We are doing another but it will take a while, lots more different breeds, some legal digging chapters and lots more quality images that we are collecting now

I hadn't realised how much interest there was in Germany and the USA of ratting with terriers....a fair percentage of pre orders for this book are from these countries....as I say, hadn't realised, but great to hear
