Wilderness Champion

By: Joseph Wharton Lippincott

When Johnny lost the best hound pup of the litter on the trail leading to his ranger’s cabin high in the Alberta peaks, he almost gave up hope of finding it; but in a year, there began to be rumors of a huge red hound who traveled in the sinister company of the black leader of the wolves. Then a wilderness adventure brought the hound back to his master, and his dog heritage held; Reddy became a man’s dog and the greatest hunting hound in the whole North Country. His fame spread and the reader follows his career with mounting enthusiasm as the scene shifts to Wyoming and Reddy’s encounters with coyotes, mountain lions, and grizzlies; and still farther south to the swamps and sand hills of Florida where the hound at length proves himself champion in fox hound Field Trials.

Then follows the dog’s main test – and his master’s – and the dramatic and satisfying climax of the tale, once more in the wilderness among the wolves.

This is a great story of a man’s life and a dog’s bound together by strange ties of love and loyalty. It is a story charged with emotion, yet the author is completely faithful to true dog character and achievement, which he knows well. He has been master of the Huntingdon Valley Hunt and of the Oak Hill Beagles and has made big-game hunting trips into Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and many parts of the United States and Europe. Readers of The Wolf King will look confidently to this book for a rare treat. It has strong appeal for young people and for dog lovers of all ages.
