For such a writer must not only know foxhunting from A to Z, but also that there is more to foxhunting than in the mere hunting of the fox. Gordon Grand is, 'of the company of the elect', but though the primary appeal of 'The Siver Horn' is to hunting folk, these pages will attract all those who love 'the wind and wonder of wild and beautiful country..', while, in the central figure - Colonel Weatherford - the author has built up a benign and forceful character which stands out as a real literary creation. Indeed the book is full of characters - men, women, children, horses and hounds, and the artist having wisely studied characters rather than instances for illustrations, has produced some remarkable studies of hunting folk." David Gray, the famous author of Gallops, pays this tribute to Gordon Grand in his introduction: "Mr. Grands gift for telling a story, the purity and elegance of his style, his discernment of character, his feeling for the moods of landscape and the fine restraint with which he touches the chords of sentiment, place him high among American writers and first in his chosen field... Mr. Grand succeeds because he is both artist and horseman, a horseman from boyhood initiated into the cult, and an artist born and practised in his craft".
