A worthy successor to Baron Munchausen, this wonderful story of foregn adventure and derring-do is made even more brilliant by the immaculately realistic portrayal of the hound Gelert. I've always been a bit of an afficionado of dog stories, where the dog is a major character, and all too often they are sanitised into what reads more like a human hero in a dog body. But Gelert is a hound through and through, in all his pissing, farting, carrion-eating, poo-rolling, crotch-sniffing glory. I don't know when I've enjoyed a book so much. As far as I'm concerned, The Dog Hunters is up there alongside White Fang and Kazan the Wolf Dog.
