Capturing a host of country characters – amorous horses, fox and huntsman and a disobedient salmon – SAMBO & SUSAN and other tales is a collection of charming, illustrated cautionary stories from the bright and talented imagination of 12 year old Katharine Harrison-Wallace in 1938.
A joy to adults and children alike, with a foreword from her distinguished Godfather, the Duke of Atholl, young Katharine’s tales developed something of a cult following when first published. Today first editions are scarce and fetch prices that the 12 year old Katharine would not have believed possible. Now republished as a limited edition hardback, this faithful reproduction has given Katharine’s delightful book a new lease of life. Proceeds from the book’s sale go to The Hunt Staff Benefit Society (HSBS) – a registered Friendly Society overseen by its patron HRH The Prince of Wales, and benefitting the staff without whom hunting could not exist.
As a stalwart of the hunting world, hunting up to three days a week in adulthood, Katharine would have approved.
