The escapades and winning ways of Harford Logan and his border collies as told to his daughter Joanne McHardy - with illustrations by Holly Bennett.

Harford has spent a lifetime working in partnership with his Border Collies – winning his very first sheepdog trial and then regularly taking home the Irish National Championship Cup. In this book he candidly shares some of his magic - how he chooses his dogs, finds a way to communicate with them and be the handler which a dog of that quality deserves.

On the way he introduces us to the characters and lifestyle of the farming world he grew up in during 1940s Ireland, his first trial successes in front of the handlers he revered as a young man, the joys and challenges of farming the Copeland Islands off County Down in Ireland, then the mountainous Lagnaha in the Western Highlands of Scotland, and finally the antics and dramas of his many 'working' trips to North America, where he judged sheepdog trials and ran dog training clinics.

This is a book you'll enjoy as much for its humour and insight into a clearly enjoyable way of life, as for the genuine advice you'll gain from a man who, for many, needs no introduction.

Harford Logan, from County Down in Northern Ireland, has been winning and judging sheepdog trials for over 50 years. He has held the Irish National Championship title six times as well as winning the Scottish National Championship title while farming near Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland. In 2010 he was awarded the International Sheep Dog Society's most prestigious award, the Wilkinson Sword, for his 'outstanding contribution to the Society, sheepdogs and trialling'. He is also one of the world's most experienced sheepdog trial judges and has regularly been invited to judge trials in America, Canada and across Europe.
