For anyone looking for a good read on hounds, Bob Plott’s Strike and Stay book is a sure enough good one. It’s well researched and covers both sides of what I’d say is somewhat of a debate. Plott delves into how both factions so to speak of more Cur-type Plotts and the more houndish Plotts came about. The Plott much like the Cur/Feists are truly an American breed. And this tells the story. Plott also has a new book out called Plott Hound Tales, which I’ll eventually read.
