    • Many years and many years ago,when I was a teenager, The Voice of Bugle Ann was on the bookshelves of my parents home. It was originally published in 1935. When I left home to go to college, I took the book with me and through the years it also sat on my own book shelves. Sometime over the last 20 or more years I finally read the book and I do remember being moved emotionally by the book. Somewhere it was finally lost in a move or a cleanupwho knows? So this is a cherished memory book from my yo [...]

    • This book had been one of my mother's books. I was going to give it away when I decided to give it a try. I did like it. I was able to enjoy this book after one of the characters stated that they did not kill the fox during the fox hunt. I was surprised that this dog story did include a murder & a surprise twist at the ending.

    • A much wordier version of this review is available on my blog.There’s a certain type of person who will enjoy this story. If you think you can get sentimental about a gruff old farmer who affectionately calls his dog his “little lady,” you are one of those people. You also belong to this group if you like James Herriot, BBC sitcoms centered around spunky elderly characters, or the Southern childhood scenes of To Kill a Mockingbird.And Bugle Ann is worth the read, if only because it will ta [...]

    • I've read this maybe four times over fifty years; it still is moving and thrilling and as far as I know utterly authentic. Prospective readers take note: it is not about tally ho and yoicks fox hunting, but about sitting by a campfire all night listening to hounds chase a fox they are not expected to catch. The dogs are raised for their tracking ability, their endurance and their voices. I grew up feasting on Albert Payson Terhune, a fun second-rate writer. and have read a lot of stories besides [...]

    • I read this book ages ago, while in middle school, and liked it enough to hang onto it all these years. I'm cleaning out my bookshelves and decided to re-read it before passing it on. I don't know if I wasn't in the right mood or if my young mind was more impressionable, but this second time around it did nothing for me.

    • The Voice of Bugle Ann was published in 1935. The vocabulary and voice of the characters reflect the period of time in the backwoods of Missouri where fox-hunting was prevalent. The conclusion offers an interesting twist that the reader may not be expecting.

    • MacKinlay Kantor is an American treasure, and this short book captures a time and place no longer with us, a view of rural Missouri in the 1930's, with farmers huddled around a campfire and listening to the crying of their hounds on the trail of a fox.
