this sounds like a great book - if you ever come across another copy let
I ordered _Watch Shepherd of the Range_ fomr that last group of
books you posted. The Drawing on the cover and inside are very ES looking.
Watch is described as what we'd call a clear sable and white and abou;80
pounds. It was written in 1939 and isn't all that great a piece of
literature but it was a fun read.
This is what it says in the Foreward:
Shepherd dogs there are of many breds; small creatures from the Shetland
Islands, a little over a foot high; big shaggy dogs of the north England
sheep country, the Old English Sheepdog; quick, alert Belgian and German
Shepherds and, last but far from least, the Scotch Collie.
From the last come most of the working sheepdogs of our own Western
ranges. Perhaps they bear onlu a family resemblance to the collie of the
show bench, for among sheepmen a dog is valued for his ability and
disposition and intelligence, not for the number of points he might score
before a judge in a show ring.
