ISBN: 1841140503
AUTHOR: Charles Noon
Parson Jack Russell
Parson Jack Russell
  • Description

Parson Jack Russell was the epitome of the nineteenth-century hunting parson. A true sportsman and countryman, he developed the strain of terrier with which he will ever be associated, and by the end of his life he was virtually MFH emeritus for the whole of foxhunting land. No Devon sporting occasion was complete without him and, in time, his fame as the 'Sporting Parson' or as plain Jack Russell' became celebrated nationally.

But Russell was not just a good fox-hunter, he was also a good and popular parish clergyman, robust, life-enhancing, a man of peace and a good neighbour and friend to all classes and conditions from royalty to farm labourers.

Charles Noon writes elegantly and in detail of Russell's long life - of his forebears, his school days at Blundell's, his marriage, his ministry and his masterships - to present a new and fully rounded portrait of this fascinating man, not merely a Devon worthy but a national character.
