Features the legendary huntsman Melvin Poe and the hounds of the Orange County Hunt near The Plains, Virginia. Narration by Alexander McKay-Smith from Lord Peter Beckford's 18th century classic Thoughts on Hunting

I don't think I've ever seen a better hunting film. Indeed, the whole thing was a masterpiece of liquid, flowing motion, but for the first time, with the way (he) told the story, I understood fox hunting, its rationale, its feeling, and deeply enjoyed it.
