Where you can find details and reviews of Ron's books.

"Recording memorable runs or events in Lakeland has been a long tradition, going back at least 150 years. One of the best known songs in the world is John Peel (even with his coat so gay!!) which is sung in many countries and apparently on more than a few battlefields (family oral tradition). A number of these songs have fallen into disuse as the years go by, but are an important part of hunting history and should be remembered. Some hunts do publish song books, usually to increase funds and are to be commended, however, many songs are lost.

"This section of the site will be reserved for hunting songs old and new. Obviously preference will be given to the fell packs but any kind of hunting song would be welcome, preferably old. Anyone wishing to contribute any will be more than welcome - please email me."
