The Stately Heritage of the Golden Retriever
by Malcolm Morecroft
From the forests around Inverness to fashionable Park Lane, London, this is the fascinating story of a small group of individuals, whose lives intertwined across the social classes to develop one of today's most beloved breeds of dog - the Golden Retriever.
Spanning more than seventy years, From Yellow to Golden is a social and family history of seven people whose contributions were pivotal in the development of the breed. It was their devotion that helped make the Golden Retriever so successful as a working dog and in the show ring. They have left a lasting legacy. It is a legacy that is enjoyed by tens of thousands of owners around the world today.
